A beautiful mixed selection of lush green live moss, perfect for terrariums. Sustainably harvested and cultivated on our private property on the West Coast.

Fern Moss or Thuidium delicatulum loves shady spots but can handle a bit of sunlight once it's settled in. Fern moss resembles a collection of miniature ferns, sporting broad triangular leaves with stem leaves typically bigger than the ones on its branches. This moss is often discovered in wetland regions, thrives in closed terrariums and partially enclosed vivariums.

Container size: 16x12x4cm; The moss may contain leaves, twigs, debris, or pests from its natural environment. It's advisable to soak the moss in water before use; colors and sizes may vary due to weather fluctuations. The last five photos are examples only and not for sale.

To store moss, use a clear-lidded container. Layer the bottom with clean sphagnum moss, lightly moisten it with dechlorinated or rainwater until damp but not soggy. Arrange the moss evenly on top, spritzing with water as needed to maintain moisture. Keep the container in bright, indirect sunlight, opening the lid occasionally for ventilation and spraying the moss if it starts to dry out.

To clean moss for terrarium use, start by preparing it, removing weeds, twigs, and debris, and trimming any excess bits. Submerge the moss in dechlorinated or rainwater in a tub for 5-10 minutes to hydrate and remove pests and dirt. Finally, gently squeeze out excess water to ensure cleanliness and readiness for your terrarium.

Care for your live terrarium moss by placing it in indirect sunlight, misting lightly when dry, using a covered terrarium for humidity, providing occasional ventilation, trimming as needed, and keeping the terrarium debris-free.
