(Pin)cushion Moss


Pincushion Moss, also known as Cushion Moss, is a resilient and adaptable plant that thrives well in sandy, somewhat dry areas and prefers moderate shade. While direct sunlight won’t kill it, it can dry out the plant. If it receives too little water, it will turn brown but will quickly recover with adequate moisture. This moss is most suited to acidic soil but shows remarkable adaptability to survive in various soil conditions.
