We gather this moss from our own forest where it grows happily along the edges of the trees, covering rocks, tree stumps and other barren, nutrient-deficient ground. It is amazingly hardy, withstanding intense heat, summer droughts and harsh, cold Missouri winters. Sometimes it gets a little dry and brittle, but a shot of water brings it right back. Depending on how thirsty it is, the colors will range from deep, dark green to very pale green, with a little bit of red thrown in here and there. This is the perfect addition to any terrarium, great for laying around the roots of potted plants to help retain moisture, as decoration in a terrarium, and it makes an awesome bath mat! This listing is for a bag full of mixed moss, and we won't skimp on you. We gather this when you order it, clean out as much as possible without washing away the layer or subsoil that it is attached to, allowed to drain, then shipped. Please keep this in mind when ordering during the winter months. If we are covered in ice or snow here in the Ozarks, it may take a few days to get to it! When you receive your moss, it may be a bit dry. Soak it in some water and it will rehydrate very rapidly. If you have a preference on the type of moss you would like the most of, let us know in the notes and we will do our best to accommodate you.
The size of the patches of moss to be obtained vary from tiny- about the size of a dime- to the size of a hand. If you need a custom-sized piece, please contact us before ordering so we can be certain we have what you need.
