    Blanket Moss

    Posted by Steven Mukai on Nov 16 , 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.

    It arrived in good condition. We put it down two days ago, so I don't know how well it will do as of yet.

Description

Carpet Moss: Mnium horn is a Lush, Green Ground Cover.

Carpet Moss or Mnium horn is a lush, green, ground covering plant that resembles carpet. Carpet Moss grows best on decaying wood in moist environments like older sections of woods or shade gardens. This moss is found in the eastern parts of the United States and Europe. It is a brilliant green in color. Carpet Moss is known to spread out once it has taken hold in a creeping fashion. It will slowly cover rocks, trees, and the ground, making it a favorite for landscapers and gardeners alike. It gives a beautiful focal point to any landscape project like stonework or walls.

Carpet Moss is a Low Maintenance Addition to any Landscape.

They do well with rich, well-drained, loamy soils and, once it is established, can be used to hold the soil in place. Carpet Moss likes moist, shady areas, which make them ideal for adding texture in shade gardens. The moss thrives in moisture, and they can double in size in six months with proper care. They are low maintenance, requiring non-sandy soil, shade, and water to thrive. As long as you have the right conditions, you can almost leave it alone, and it'll do just fine. Carpet Moss is an excellent addition to any landscape. 

Carpet Moss has been used to create living carpets in flower beds, shade gardens, and yards. It will work its way around flowers and plants that you plant before putting the moss itself down. These mosses are capable of growing year-round, even below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. They'll go dormant without proper moisture and start growing again as soon as enough consistent moisture gets to the plant.

 When many people think of moss, they think of soft-ground covering tendrils in large swatches. It is accurate for Carpet Moss, or Hypnum, a genus that covers eighty different species. Carpet Moss grows plentifully in the dark, moist areas, significantly where there is fallen or rotting wood. It is bright to dark green depending on its age and year, with its beginning life as a golden green and darkening over the seasons.

Additionally, Carpet Moss soft enough for small animals to live comfortably in and around it. When dried out, Carpet Moss has been used to stuff bedding and other fabric items and has leaves that grow parallel to one another with a taper at the end. It can reproduce both sexually and asexually, making it versatile for many uses in both home and commercial gardens. Carpet Moss requires a bit of maintenance, but it is one of the less needy decorative plants compared to other garden additions such as delicate blossoming plants. Even so, ensuring it is properly maintained. Any pests or parasites kept away are paramount and will enable them to last longer and look beautiful. At an average of an inch high and dense enough to look like its common name.
