    Enjoyable

    Such a tiny little package when it arrived. But a good soaking brought them to life. I've had them a month or more now and find them quite enjoyable.

    Customer Service, A+++++

    Posted by Dick on 10th May 2016

    The first plant I received was not packaged well, was rather small and didn't arrive as quickly as the others plants that I had ordered at the same time. It died immediately. I gave the seller a low rating. Immediately the seller reached out to me, personally oversaw the packaging of a new plant and sent it to me at no additional cost. I was impressed with the quality of service and care for the customer.

    We live in a very hardy, cold environment and I couldn't believe anything this pretty could grow here

Reindeer Moss

Reindeer Moss, also known as Reindeer Lichen or Caribou Moss, is light colored lichen, not a moss. It is food for reindeer (caribou), which makes it very important to the wild. It is slow growing in hot and cold well-drained environments and may take decades to grow back once disturbed. The grayish, whitish, or brownish large mats. It builds on humus or soil covered rock mostly in taiga and tundra. It often dominates the ground in Pine forests but is a threatened species in other places. In Eastern Himalaya, it was traditionally used to treat kidney stones.

Reindeer moss is also referred to as Reindeer Lichen

It has a lighter color than most mosses. It can stand for both hot and cold temperatures. This moss prefers well-drained soils and environments that are wide open. This moss gets its name because reindeer love munching on it and reindeer live in colder climates. It is a slow grower only growing around 3-5 mm per year. If this plant is overgrown or overeaten the growth will slow down, and it may take years to recover.

Reindeer Moss has long branches, and each one will be seen divided into three or more sections

They are white or gray. This moss prefers to grow in humus-rich soils and is seen growing primarily in the tundra areas or wetlands. This moss has many herbal uses. It has been known to decorate windows and help eliminate kidney stones. The reindeer moss is used by crushing the plant or drying it out and mixing it with other foods. This moss also helps alleviate diarrhea. If this moss is being used for medicinal purposes and is not cooked well, it may cause an upset stomach. The stems of this plant are hollow that make them unique. These plants prefer water but can go long periods with no water. The colors may change to brown without water, but as soon as they get water, they will revive themselves.
