Additional Information

History of Microbiota Decussata:

Microbiota Decussata is a evergreen shrub that is a member of the cypress family known as Cupressaceae. The plant is native to a limited area of the Sikhote-Alin mountains in Primorskiy Krai in the Russian Far East. Microbiota Decussata was discovered in 1923, but because of political secrecy in the Soviet Union, there was no knowledge of this plant outside of the country for about 50 years. This plant is often used as a substitution for Junipers because it has similar qualities and characteristics.
