    Terrarium Moss

    Posted by Kathy on 18th Sep 2020

    The moss I received was very nice. They shipped quickly and it was very well packaged. It was nice and green, and stayed moist during travel to CA. I could not be more pleased with my purchase. I will definitely order from TN Nursery again.

    Terrarium moss

    Posted by AmeliaK Rodriguez on 28th Jul 2020

    The moss was all mixed in 1 bag, a bit “tangled”, from shipping I assume. It would be nice to have the different classes of moss identified. Due to tropical storm, shipment delayed this a few dry pieces. Ordering was easy and it was shipped out fast.

    Perfect

    A first I was worried that the seemingly fragile grass was damaged in shipping, but I immediately opened the box and followed the growers instructions. Within a few days the plants looked great and have now tripled in size. I plan on buying more

Description

Terrarium Moss is Used for Tropical Plants and Reptile Habitats

Terrarium Moss is made for the use of tropical plants and homes for pets such as reptiles. Moss Terrariums can be found outdoors, in homes or offices. There are over 12,000 different types of moss that can be used in Moss Terrariums. Moss for terrariums is generally known for being slow growing and found in wooded areas or growing from rocky crevasses such as patio tiles. If grown indoors, it can be hard at times to become due to not having enough humidity to continue growing. Soil for moss needs to be very dense and moist. Thick enough to make a solid ball. Most mosses have felt like touch and can be a bright green color or a very dark green color. One of the most common moss for terrariums is the Pillow moss. Pillow moss is known for being green and lush and thrives in very moist environments with lots of light. Pillow moss is excellent for outdoor terrariums. A couple of others are New England moss, which is a favorite selling moss. New England moss holds a lot of water and stays moist longer than any other type of moss which can be excellent for terrariums made outdoors as well. And the New Zealand Sphagnum Moss which is perfect for a Moss terrarium due to its softness. New Zealand moss can be ideal for indoor or outdoor terrariums.


 Terrarium Moss is a Spore Growing Plant used in a Variety of Landscaping Conditions

Broom Fork Moss: Dicranum scoparium, is a species that can be naturally found in the Great Lakes Region. Its coarse leaves identify it with woolly stems 2–8 cm high. It often forms mats in forests with both dry or moist soil. Broom moss grows in clumps and can grow alongside other species making it ideal for a terrarium with many types of plant life.

 Terrarium Moss 

Moss is a plant that grows from spores instead of seeds. Although there are dozens of variations of moss, there are two general types, which are Acrocarpous moss and Pleurocarpous moss.

  Moss thrives in temperate areas and can grow on just about any surface. This feature makes moss ideal for use in terrariums. A terrarium is any non-draining, clear container.

 To build your terrarium moss garden, put a one-inch layer of pebbles or gravel on the very bottom of your terrarium for drainage. Layer sphagnum moss or dried moss on top of the rocks or gravel to keep the soil you will later add from falling into the drainage area.

  Next, layer a few inches of loose moistened soil. Moss prefers acidic soil with a pH between 5 and 5.5, but it can grow on hard surfaces. You can sculpt the soil layer over stones or whatever to add interest.

  Moss does not have a root system, but you’ll want to dig up some of the soil the moss is growing in if you dig up the moss from your local area. Firmly press the moss you are transplanting onto the moist soil layer.

  Place the terrarium in indirect light. Water the moss daily with a mist for the first two or three weeks. Then back off. If the moss turns dark, it is getting too much water.
