    Moss Galore

    Posted by Robyn on 17th Feb 2017

    The moss arrived as expected. It was moist and easy to layout on the prepared surface ( long driveway hillside). I am watering daily. Hopefully the transition will be successful.

    We purchased this to use in a wedding and once we saw how it was packaged, we panicked! But we planted it and it was breath taking!

Description

Sheet Moss - Hypnum Moss.

This sheet moss belongs to the Plantae kingdom. It grows in a pattern in a non-vascular system. This plant is perfect for cushion and it feels like carpet. Sheet moss is great for the soil since it acts as a fertilizer. In addition, this plant grows naturally on rocks, logs, and other plants. Maybe you have seen it before while walking through the woods. These plants are found outdoors and can be grown in a terrarium. It has been known to be cultivated in zones 8-11 but it really depends. Sheet moss is perfect for your house because of its soft texture and green smelling air. Also, many people prefer to sit on the soft grass.

Sheet Moss has some attractive qualities.

Hypnum moss is a well-known part of the Hypnaceae family. Over 20 species exist, with just as many names. It is recognized as sheet moss, feather moss, carpet moss, fern or log moss, and brocade moss. Phases of bright green to yellow-green color are expected, with low growing, individual branches that are bristly and sometimes curly. One characteristic that differentiates hypnum from the rest is the absence of its midrib or costa. Its high transplant success rate makes this sheet moss an adaptable species; it can grow amongst rock, logs, and other plants. Partial sunlight or shade is preferred.

Sheet Moss is preferred by gardeners because of its ability to replace a grass lawn. 

Sandy or acidic soil provides a thriving environment, especially when planted in the spring. Some gardeners rely on hardiness zones, geographically marked areas that define the success of a plants growth. Hypnum moss has come to be recognized as a botanical preference and be found outdoors or online. Many mosses can grow in a terrarium as well. However, remember that Mother Nature always knows best.
