Sheet Moss (also known as Hypnum, Feather, Carpet and Brocade Moss) and is an excellent soil fertilizer. It is part of the Plantae and Hypnaceae family, growing in a non-vascular style system. Sheet Moss makes a great carpet-like cushion with a soft texture and sweet, earthy smell. It grows beautifully across rocks, wooden logs and blends well with other foliage. Often, Sheet Moss is grown in a terrarium but is found naturally spreading across forests. Our previous buyers have enjoyed using it for moss lawns and pathways in their gardens.
This particular type of Moss thrives in more shaded areas with partial sunlight and is classed as a low-growing species. You will get a deep, bright green to yellowy green color with lovely individual branches and slight curls. A distinctive aspect of this particular species is that it does not have a midrib or costa.
We recommend you use a sand-based, acidic soil to optimise it’s high transplant success rate.
