    Is the moss inside real?

    Yes, The plants seen inside Living Lights are real living moss

    Is the water inside real?

    No. The water and waterfall inside Living Lights is artificial, we found this works best to keep the entire ecosystem as low maintenance as possible.

    Is it difficult to maintain?

    No. Moss is a very resilient low maintenance plant which basically just needs to be in a cool moist environment outside of direct sunlight. This simply means keep the lid on, spray with a mist of water from time to time if the moss dries out and leave it in a place outside of direct sunlight.

    How to water?

    Using a spray bottle or misting bottle (buy now) simply spray with spring water or mineral water, when the moss starts to dry out.

    Do you have ones with artificial plants?

    Yes, Despite the fact they are extremely easy to maintain some people still prefer to have something that requires no maintenance. This is why we sell custom orders with preserved Moss which essentially looks the same but doesn’t require any maintenance.

    How long do the plants live for?

    Given the right conditions and proper maintenance the plants should survive for years. Please read detailed maintenance guide with your order

    How does the light inside work?

    The light used is a battery operated LED light with wireless remote control. The remote features a dimmer switch with two light levels and works for up to 10m (unobstructed).

    Does the light keep the moss alive?

    Not exactly. The light is not designed to keep the moss alive. As long as there's a small amount of filtered light the moss should be fine. However if the moss is not getting enough light it LED light can help.

    Despite what a lot of people think moss still needs light to survive and the low light emitted from the LED light used only helps the moss.

    Absolutely love it

    I checked it out a few times before I purchased. But so glad that I did. Absolutely love my Ancient Forests. It looks so serene and is so calming. So impressed I've purchased a different one and am looking forward to it arriving. If you're considering buying one go for it.

    All Living Lights are carefully crafted by hand and are all a one of a kind item; the waterfall effect inside is created using a mixture of epoxy resin and acrylic paint.
