1 gallon bag full of a mixture of live feather and sheet moss from deep within a private forest. This collection of moss is smaller pieces and may include feather, sheet, rockcap or cushion. Great for transplanting, propagating or for use between patio stones. Also great for growing on statues or for moss milkshakes. (See link below for great how-to article)
All our moss is 100% natural and harvested fresh by us here at Appalachian Emporium. We do not buy our moss in bulk to resell so we know that it hasn't been exposed to any contaminants.
You will receive a mixture of what we have at the time, so we are unable to fill special requests for a particular type of moss on this listing.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
