    Sphagnum Moss

    Posted by Alex on 15th Sep 2020

    Sphagnum moss arrived looking fairly green and still moist even with long shipping times due to outside circumstances. After a few days of care it appears to be doing fine still. Maybe a bit more green? There were some ants and a couple spiders as well as a few leaves and sticks but very minimal. Not a moss aficionado but looks great and price was good too.

    Sphagnum Moss

    Lots of moss, more than I needed actually. Got a few spiders, pine needles and leaves. But, all in all after a clean and treatment to be sure I don't give any unwanted critters to my beloved Carnivorous plant babies, it will be a great addition to my bog!

    I received the moss in very good condition, placed out immediately and have been keeping wet. Since its only been a few days, I am not certain how well it will grow. I'm not sure it will survive our hot dry summer, but I really like moss and am hopeful.

Description

Sphagnum Peat Moss can Survive in Any Environment

   Sphagum Moss – Its end use better knows sphagnum, Peat Moss. Sphagnum Moss grows in wet areas forming bogs and mires in a variety of fields. The moss can survive in any environment, including high rainfall, low temperatures, or inadequate drainage.  Sphagum Moss can hold water, and its structure contains a high acidity level. The Sphagnum mosses are used in the propagation of plants because of their nutritional ability to reduce the PH in any plants growing near them. These mosses blossom into spores instead of flowering like other plants, which help it to spread their extreme power to enhance the growth of other plants around them with their spongy texture. As the sphagnum moss manufactures certain chemicals that build up its acidic nature to absorb moisture and prevent decay of other plants in the area, these mosses build up over time to form the commonly known product called peat moss.

Sphagnum Peat Moss is Commonly Used as Potting Soil

 One common plant that has adapted its life to live in harmony with these mosses is the cranberry, among other plants of similar nature. Additionally, the sphagnum mosses provide food for small insects and animals in the wilderness and promote their survival as well. It is commonly used today by gardeners as potting soil and in seed generation. In summary, the sphagnum mosses have a wide range of abilities for helping plants, animals and people in proving to be a highly beneficial media as a very important critical natural source that has been used over the course of one's lifetime making protection of our bogs a top priority for preservation as they can never be restored again. Our swamps are very precious in their ability to the multitude of benefits they serve. Therefore they care must be perpetual to keep them in abundance.

 When it comes to lawn, most folks might not consider moss as an attractive alternative, but it indeed is, and Sphagnum Moss can create a lovely dense green ground cover, instead of traditional grass. It's also kind to the environment in its small way because this particular moss can store large amounts of carbon, which helps reduce global warming. The living plant works ideally in shady areas with moist soil and is low-growing, forming thick mats. Sphagnum Moss is so healthy; it can support the weight of a magnificent moose walking across it. Sphagnum Moss is pure to grow and requires a few basics. In nature, the plant is found in acidic soil around wet, boggy areas and wooded swamps. That means lime is not a friend to this moss. The plant only likes partial to full shade and does well in well-drained soil, sandy or clay forms. The plants are cold-hardy, and nursery experts recommend climate zones 5 - 9 for this moss with the shallow roots.

 Sphagum Moss produces a velvety green blanket and is ideal for sloping areas and places where grass has difficulty growing.
It naturally reaches a height of about four inches and a width of around three feet. The plant also features tiny leaves that become very close to the stem, and some of them have "teeth." The dense clumps they amass can even float atop bog water. Sphagnum Moss grows fast and steadily, and you don't have to worry about upkeep. It's quite resilient and draws its nutrients from the air and water rather than the soil. It makes for the perfect shady garden and adds interesting texture, greenery, and what many terms "calming beauty" to one's landscape design. The moss can even proliferate under water. Sphagnum moss is sold and shipped as a bare root plant and available in square feet for coverage areas.
