This is for these beautiful live moss/british soldier lichen log kits. They are 100% natural from deep forest. The split log has been specially cut so the moss and lichens, or anything you would like to add, can be placed and grown. These look super in windows, kitchens, terrariums, as centerpieces, in reptile habitats, basically wherever you choose!
The log is approx. 4" in length and 2" inches in diameter. The wood is Appalachian birch 100% cured ready for use. The logs may differ slightly from what is pictured, such as the thickness and color of the bark. Each tree is unique. You will get more than enough moss and british soldier lichen in your kit. Just secure in the special drilled wells and you're ready for display. Mist the moss and lichens every few days with spring water. Even looks great as a dry display, it's up to you. Let it dry out and that's ok, looks great both ways!
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.
