    Although a mistake was made and the wrong type of moss was shipped to me, your customer service department responded immediately and rectified the issue. I will recommend to friends and send all of my future business to TN Nursery!

    Blanket Moss

    Posted by Steven Mukai on Nov 17, 2020

    I submitted an earlier review where I noted that the carpet moss was beautiful, but I had only received about half the coverage of what I ordered. Also the box was open and the moss was bare in the box. About a week after submitting the review, I received another box in the mail, this time securely taped, and with moss in a plastic garbage bag. Thanks so much for reading the review and addressing my concern. The moss is indeed beautiful, and now I feel good about the purchase. Thanks again for the customer service!

    Maybe order in cooler months

    Posted by Carol A. on Sep 02, 2020

    Perhaps it was not the best idea to order during the summer months. The moss arrived a little brown and desiccated but I suspect it will green up with a bit of care. It also came complete with wildlife (a snail and a slug) at no extra cost which I did not mind at all. I was surprised to find that the moss was in rather small pieces.

Carpet Moss is part of the genus family Hypnum

As it's an evergreen plant, it can thrive in all seasons and climate zones, forming ground cover!

It belongs to the genus Hypnum having a total of 80 species. North America is home to twenty of these species. This moss is widely present in the forest beside stream beds and at the base of trees. Moss grows all year if the sun and humidity are both present simultaneously. They are rootless plants that grow into a living carpet of golden and green in their youth then darken with age. The leaves grow straight to one another and narrow to a point at the end, although they are not pointy. All of these characteristics collectively make it an ideal green layer for drawing attention to the earth's contour and adding a sense of drama to a garden's hidden shadowed areas.  

It's a plant that can be used in a variety of ways. In addition, it can also be grown indoors or outdoors, in the sun or the shady areas. You can use it in gardens and lawns where grasses don't grow without enough moisture. An interior moss garden inside a terrarium is the preferred planting choice when growing inside. This type of moss is a tiny plant about the size of a human palm. It spreads via spores and will quickly cover space, growing slowly. It will only reach a height of a few inches. Some species appear to grow in bunches, while others grow upright.

Carpet Moss is great for areas where nothing else will grow

Sexual and asexual reproduction is possible in carpet moss. Mosses generate small female structures that form egg cells. And male structures that make sperm cells while sexually reproducing, depending on meteorological conditions. They might appear in several areas of the same plant. Its sperm fertilize the eggs, resulting in a sporophyte formation. The sporophyte starts to develop from the female plant, consuming nutrients from the parent. The capsules produce multiple spores. These open and discharge the spores transform into new mosses that are leafy.

Moss is used for beautification in the gardening and flower industries. Historically, moss was utilized to absorb a lot of water, stuff beds, and act as insulation. Carpet moss was thought to help people sleep. People add moss to brighten gloomy regions and entice visitors with its dark green color in the garden. Instead of masking the pattern of the landscape, these mosses reveal it. They are sometimes mixed up with sheet moss. They do need specific nutrition but are low-maintenance mosses.
