Very good was larger then expected but most of it is healthy and alive upon arrival. The packaging could have been better mine was in a trash bag. Sectioning it off onto large sealabke bags would have helped storage and maintained humidity during the shipments and allowed for easy storage upon arrival.
I just received my moss and placed it under my silk tree. I'm hoping for a nice look. I just hope it's alright to put it in soil. From all the pictures I've seen they seem to be just siting on things. Hope it works out. The plants were in excellent condition so if I did it right, it should be great.
The product came well packaged and healthy.
Better than expectations, very good looking. Going to order some more...
really good! deliver fast, and product is fresh.
Great friendly service. Nicely packaged and quick shipping. and all my moss was great
This looks great planted around the waterfall in my front yard. Fabulous.
Was surprised that the moss arrived in such thriving condition. It's been only 1 week, and its been very hot, so it's taking some time to assimilate, but it still looks amazing. Very fortunate to have found this nursery!
Nice, some off color (yellowing) and needed to pick out some excess small vines growing in the moss. Overall good quantity and will work for my project.

Cushion Moss - Leucobryum albidum is Often Called White Moss
Cushion moss, often known as white moss, is a plant species for its plush, slightly grayish-white, and green coloration. Like all mosses, they enjoy moist environments. They can grow in most places with that type of climate, propagating on almost any surface either naturally or applied via a transplant or a liquid moss solution. Cushion moss will need to be watered often if the air is dry, or it will begin to die and go brown.
Cushion Moss Enjoys a Moist Growing Environment and is Found Covering Large Areas of Shady Parks and Woods
It is often called white cushion moss because of the white sheen that gives it its light green color. Found in nature covering large areas of shady parks and woods, cushion mosses are some of the most versatile and valuable mosses, with many practical applications outside and inside. This moss grows slowly and spreads through spores, which cause many cushions or patches to grow carefully. Over time, these can develop into a light green lawn. Cushion moss prefers sandy, acidic soil over richer, darker soils. Sometimes found on the edges of shady rivers or old stream beds, it grows best under damp conditions because it lacks real roots. The plant from its immediate surroundings must obtain water through osmosis, and if allowed to dry out, it will enter into a dormant state until it is pre-moistened. Most cushion mosses are found on the floors of well-established forests in the almost full shade. Care should be taken to avoid heavy foot traffic over large sheets. Indoors, it can be put to use as a top layer in hanging flower baskets and other potted plants. The light green of the moss contrasts nicely with the darker green of many houseplants, adding beauty and holding moisture in, which reduces the frequency that plants need to be watered. If care is taken to place it in its ideal conditions, cushion mosses can make a significant, low-demanding ground cover.
Cushion Moss is a plant that is typically found in sandy areas where the soil is a bit drier. Acidic soil is usually the best for the plant instead of alkaline soil to get the most nutrients. The plant also grows best in shady areas instead of being in direct sunlight. You'll usually find the moss growing in wooded areas or on the sides of hills and mountains where the sun doesn't shine as often but moisture for the plant to grow. However, the plant doesn't require a lot of water for it to thrive. The plant's color is bright green, with yellow specks seen on the ends of the leaves that grow from the moss. From a distance, the moss can have a silver appearance.
When Cushion Moss grows and reaches maturity, it has a round appearance and often looks like a small cushion. It's soft to the touch and grows close to the ground. Cushion Moss is often seen growing near the base of trees as it uses the moisture from the tree's root system for nutrients. It's a plant that is often used along walkways and mulched areas, as well.
