Manufacturer Direct - Fresh Live Lush Fern/Sheet Moss
Your Fern/Sheet Moss (Thuidium delicatulum) was carefully and sustainable harvested directly from the lush green hills of Appalachia. Each order is carefully hand packed by our greenhouse in resealable bags to ensure the integrity of your moss sheets during shipment. Though your moss is fresh and alive, you will notice that your moss may not be “wet” to the touch. We ship live moss this way to reduce mold and bacteria growth in transit. Upon receipt, we advise that you use your moss immediately in your tank, terrarium, bonsai, kokedama, or fairy garden.
Historical Uses: In the past, moss from this area was used to chink cabins, stuff mattresses, and line both cradles and coffins. Currently, the horticultural trade uses moss as packing material, hanging basket liners, and soil covers for potted plants or terrariums. Moss is also used in arts and crafts and in moss gardens and green roofs.
Moss Structure: Moss is actually catchall phrase for over 12,000 different species of non-vascular plants in the plant Division Bryophyta (sensu stricto). The plants are low growing, and rarely reach above a few centimeters in height. This plant relies mainly on spore-based propagation methods. Moss is most notable for using a single of layer of cells which lack internal air spaces for photosynthesis, and using rhizoids instead of roots to anchor them to the substrate.
Fast shipping and good quality. Will definitely buy again if I need more.

I have my moss in a temporary container right now but it looks great! I reached out to Erick directly before ordering as I was looking for a supplier so that I can make terrariums and he was quick to respond. I love his personal touches in his note after you order, I can tell this shop is owned by a nature lover. I am super excited to partner with this shop as the quality and amount was excellent. I even recieved a few extra samples of mosses and that was super cool! I can't wait to make tons of terrariums with this moss and share it with lots of people! Thank you again!
