Verdant, furry moss, of which there are some 1800 varieties, has the power to fascinate. 
Moss makes a literary appearance in an early-10th-century poem. Later a culture revolving around moss appreciation evolved through the influence of Zen and the Way of Tea’s aesthetic concept of “refined and rustic.” 
During the pandemic, moss is enjoying a comeback, and people are finding solace in moss terrariums and other interior items. Discover the complex yet delicate beauty of this lush greenery.
