Sphagnum Moss (Also known as Peat Moss) makes a great soil additive as it increases the acidity level and improves drainage. Sphagnum and Peat Moss are often used to describe the same species. However, Peat Moss is in fact the decaying component that is found underneath living Sphagnum Moss. It is often found in swamps and bogs.
This particular type of Moss improves the growth of new seeds and helps other plants thrive in your garden. It is often found in potting soil because it is excellent at absorbing moisture as well as draining it, storing it up or releasing excess for all your newly potted plants’ needs. Sphagnum Peat Moss creates an ideal growing environment for plants and seedlings needing a moist home.
