Sphagnum moss is magnificent for ornamental plants, moisture control, critter food (Turtles & hermit crabs), vivariums, terrariums, orchids, bedding, substrate, organic farming and many other applications. The Peruvian Moss grows abundantly in swamps of the Peruvian highlands, 3,000 meters above sea level.

Natural product, it grows in swamps or freshwater wetlands, located on the hills of the central highlands in Peru, one of the cleanest places on earth. It is a 100% vegetable and organic substrate, has the property of being a passive water retaining, absorbing up to 20 times its weight in water. This allows the plants to grow with constant moisture but not saturated. It offers an extraordinary process of oxygenation to the root of the plant which contributes to faster growth, allowing in the case of flowers a longer life in its flowering stage. Provides antiseptic and antibacterial properties, as it provides a preservative that helps the plant resist diseases and parasites. It is a product without any pollution.

Easy to use medium that holds moisture and fertilizer for growing plants. Excellent for lining wire baskets mounting staghorn or bromeliads and lining and filling wire forms of topiary. This high-quality moss is helpful to use in reducing shock when re-potting seedlings such as Cattleyas Phalaenopsis Oncidiums and Dendrobiums Long Fiber Sphagnum Moss last a long time in the vivarium and terrarium and has natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. It is placed between the substrate and leaf litter layers in a vivarium to prevent the substrate from adhering to your critters, and to increase the suitable environment for microfauna. Long Fiber Sphagnum Moss also makes a great substrate for temporary or quarantine tanks for dart frogs, as well as rearing bins for young critters.
Best to soak the dry sphagnum moss in water where it will expand and fluff up ready for use, add to potting mixes or use as a potting medium on its own. Add to critter substrate for excellent moisture control. Also fantastic to place on top of the substrate for tarantulas to keep soaking wet for spiders to drink from and keep moisture levels good.

My moss is from the Andes of Peru, over 3,000 feet altitude. Due to its climate and absence of trees, it is a very high quality and clean moss. Because of the characteristics of the harvest zones, at great altitude in the Andes of Peru, Peruvian Sphagnum Moss has a level of cleanliness that exceeds similar products in the market.
