1 Quart Live Fan Club Moss Evergreen

Regular price $4.29

1 Quart bag Fan Club Moss (lycopodium diphasiastrum).

This is among some of the older vascular mosses.  It is known to be pre-historic in age and grew as tall as 9 feet in height thousands of years ago. 

This moss is a evergreen with its main vine growing about 1/2" below the leaf deposit (forest floor).  This moss is a great addition to any terrarium, bonsai container, or shaded walkways.  Can be grown inside or outside.  For best results, use soil from the forest that is more acidic.  We offer this if you do not have access to raw forest soil.  Transplant in your own forest or even use as a potted evergreen inside.  This will not live in full sun. It grows in the deeper valleys of the forest  where the temperatures are cooler and it is more shaded. Very hardy, spreads at a good rate once the vine is established.

 You will get a full quart bag, taken fresh the day your order is shipped.

Lichen

These do not require any special planting. Simply place on top of your soil and mist with a spring water (or non-chlorinated) every few days. These do best when kept out of direct sunlight, especially during the hotter hours of the day.  Clean air is essential for these to live. They will not thrive in a smoky or contaminated environment.  Also note that these grow at a very slow rate, most only 1/4-1/2" per year, if that. 

 

Moss

Keep moss damp. Moisten every 3-5 days if inside.  Avoid full direct sun for more than 6 hours. Cooler morning sun provides the best results, with shade in the heat of the day.

Tip: Rain water can be caught in a vessel and put into a NEW CLEAN spray bottle for natural watering.

 

Succulent Care

Succulents do best in well-drained soil. The addition of grit or sharp sand will improve porosity & drainage.  After planting, water once a week. New plants should be well established in 5-6 weeks.

Visit the Cactus Succulent Society for very detailed care information. A great resource!

 

Mini-Terrarium Instructions

Place a small clump of moss in container first, then place the smaller lichen as preferred to fill in or add detail. Tweezers or a skewer can be helpful in placing and arranging. Water well then add a few drops of spring water (or non-chlorinated) every few days.

 

Seedling Care

Depending on the time of year, your seedlings may or may not have leaves. Care of the roots is most important at this time, keep them moist until time for planting.
