Appalachian Emporium's Premium Super Mix contains 1 quart bag of premium live fresh moss, harvested just days before being sent to you. Our moss is lush and green! You can expect to see varieties such as rock cap, feather/sheet moss or cushion moss. You will receive at least 2 varieties. All our moss grows naturally here on our own property and not grown on pine needles or other substrates as it is when purchased from nurseries, or from other sellers who buy their moss in bulk to resell to you. You receive it direct from the woods, with that wonderful forest scent! Great care is taken to prevent contamination of the moss. It is 100% organic...chemical and pesticide free. 

This is a beautiful mixture of premium live fresh moss that is great for terrariums, vivariums, moss dish gardens, bath mats or just to line your flower pots. Use along walkways, for crafts, endless possibilities.

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.
