Producer of mummy plants
Hildering Green art brings atmosphere to every room. The atmosphere of real green, but with art and mummy plants. Mummy plants are real plants where the moisture in the stems has been replaced by an environmentally friendly and degradable preparation liquid. This technique has been developed by Hildering and unique. In addition to plants, this technique is also applied in mosses, trees and grasses.
The art and mummy plants are therefore sold all over the world. Director and founder Maurits Hildering: “Our customers are often shopping centres, hotels, restaurants, convention centres and other special buildings. Our customers choose a natural appearance without the corresponding maintenance (only dusting is sufficient). By balance, this is also cheaper.
In addition to plants, Hildering also produces mummy moss. These walls are tailored to the wishes of the customer. Zoin produces 70,000 m2 of moss walls on an annual basis.
A special moss wall is a 480-m2 example at Gardermoen Airport in Oslo: “The airport is one of the greenest airports in the world, and they wanted to radiate with a clear statement. This became the largest moss wall in the world. It is very important to the public. There are even YouTube movies where passengers are already hugging the moss wall!
On an annual basis, 25 projects with mummy or artificial trees are delivered. This varies from 9-meter tall eucalyptus trees for a shopping centre in Venice to olive trees at Thalens (which grow from included standing tables!) And palm trees in Norway’s oldest hotel.
Hildering has consciously sought a unique position in a niche market. “Because of our technology, we have a big advantage, by continuing to innovate, we continue building this further. A special experiment is the mummification of a 35-meter high Prunus tree. A Norwegian customer would like this and we will test if, in practice, this also works. The tree has already sown 450 litres of preservative and looks promising.
