Live Pincushion Moss (Leucobryum Glaucum)


Live pincushion moss will do well in sandy areas where the soil is a bit dry. The plant likes moderate shade; too much direct sunlight can dry it out but won’t kill it. It will turn brown with too little water, but it will bounce back once it receives enough moisture. Acidic soil is the best soil, but it will survive everywhere.
