Purify indoor air with moss

I am investigating what could be a low-maintenance, low-tech solution to purify indoor air, and my research has naturally led me to moss and its purifying properties.

Starting point

One project in particular caught my attention, found on The Earth Issue, it is called Foliair and it is a decorative frame that you can hang on your wall, but it is made of moss, so it purifies your place.

Learning by doing

As soon as I read this, I went to the nearest park to my apartment, Montjuïc Barcelona, and picked up moss where I could find it, in order to start my own culture. This video, How to propagate your own moss helped me to get the basics right.


I'm not sure yet what I am going to do with this project, but this page will be used to document my explorations.
