    Sphagnum Moss

    Posted by Alex on Sep 15 , 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.

    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 Moss is a Soil Additive

Peat moss is the dead and decaying matter that can be found underneath live sphagnum moss in bogs and swamps. The terms "peat moss" and "sphagnum peat moss" are often used interchangeably, though technically, sphagnum moss is the live version of this product. Peat is used to increasing acidity and improve the drainage of the soil. Unlike soil amendments like compost, it does not contain soil nutrients on its own. This product aids the growth of new seeds and creates an ideal growing environment for new plants in the garden. S

Sphagnum Moss Helps Create a Perfect Environment In Fledgling Gardens

This popular gardening product is commonly found in potting soil because it does two things that can be very useful for growing seeds. First, it's capable of absorbing moisture and holding on to it until the roots of the surrounding plants have had their fill. Potting your plants in potting soil that contains peat moss ensures that your plants will be given a chance to absorb the water they need to sustain life.

Second, it drains well. Even while it absorbs moisture, it also lets go of moisture when the time comes. This makes it an ideal product for use with many potted plants. It's also a preferred additive in dense, clay-like soil because it improves drainage and helps aerate the soil, creating a better environment for plants that cannot tolerate "wet feet."

Spaghnum Is the Goodies From Decaying Peat Moss

Peat is just one of several types of additives that can improve the soil in your garden and live underneath sphagnum moss. Since it can have an acidifying effect, it's best used in gardens where acidic soil is preferred. Find out what soil pH your plants prefer by looking them up individually. It is not by itself an appropriate soil for seeds, potted plants, or outdoor gardens. Most experts recommend that this product be used in proportions of about 1/3 to 2/3 of the total soil volume for best results. The exact proportions you choose should depend on what you're planting.

Why Spaghnum Moss is Good For Seedlings

Seeds need moisture and nutrients, and peat holds on to both of these things very well. You can water your seedlings and feel confident that the peat in your planting medium will keep your seeds moist for longer than many other planting mediums. Due to the nature of this product, you can also feel confident that it will not contain harmful microorganisms or seeds from weeds that could impact the health and well-being of your seedlings. This product helps your seeds start healthy and robust and should be a mainstay in your standard gardening supplies.
