Care and Handling Instructions for Fresh Mosses
Our Fresh Mosses (Spanish, Sheet, Mood, Shag and Reindeer) are LIVE plant material, and should be opened immediately or soon after delivery. At the very least, please separate all boxes that are wrapped together, and make sure that all ‘breathing’ holes in boxes are punched open.
Store boxes loose-stacked, leaving room between each box for the moss to breathe, or remove moss from boxes and store loosely packed in any other breathable container; wire racks and dairy crates work very well!
Care and Handling Instructions for Preserved and Dyed Mosses
Eco-Friendly Uses, Benefits and Fun Facts!
Mosses, including fresh Spanish, Sheet, Reindeer, Mood and Shag mosses, can prepare natural environments for the re-growth of numerous other plant species, aid in soil development, drainage, moisture retention, and germination of vascular plant seeds.
*Native restoration projects often emphasize the incorporation and benefits of mosses;
Mosses have no cuticle and absorb water quickly means that they offer water filtration solutions for controlling storm water; Instead of water rushing through vegetation, mosses absorb water through their leaves slowing the flow and allowing rain to reach the groundwater table gradually.
Moss instead of mulch offers better water filtration for thirsty vascular trees and plants while still providing a desirable insulating factor.
Unlike bark mulches and pine needles, mosses won’t have to be replaced each season,
There are many environmental advantages to using Mosses for ground cover over grasses.
Moss Lawns Vs. Grass Lawns
*Mosses require no chemicals typically used to maintain grass such as fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.
*That means no groundwater contamination.
*Fossil-fuel lawnmowers have no emission controls so pollution is significant
*Just one hour of mowing with a gas-powered mower can equal 43 hours of driving around in a vehicle.
Moss for Terrariums and Reptile Habitats
Once watered thoroughly, the micro-landscape of an enclosed moss terrarium requires next to nothing other than adequate light to keep it flourishing – even for months on end without watering. The moisture in the terrarium recyles as water vapor, returning regular moisture to the terrarium moss.
Moss is also the ideal companion plant for pet reptiles or amphibians.
