Meamea Green Walls & Preserved Plants

Having done a brief stint in interior plant design, I know that sometimes, you just have to specify silk plants.  (As much as I hated to do it).   There are some companies that make fake plants so realistic that you have to touch just to know, but now there is meamea who is preserving plants with glycerin so that you can have the real thing in a place with not enough foot-candles of light.    The glycerin (which is 100% biodegradable and very similar to sugar) replaces all the sap in a plant so that it will keep it’s life like qualities for color and texture when placed in the dark corner.  It is a wonderful ‘green’ alternative for commercial properties.

Even more interesting though…meamea is making greenwall components of the same preserved plants.  I love green walls for both their visual appeal and the improved air quality that they can bring to a building, but they are just not an option for so many sites.  With the preserved panel though, the green wall effect can go anywhere.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
