Product Description

Atrichum angustatum, commonly called Star Moss, which is a small moss that holds soil in place with its compact growth patterns. Tolerant of a variety of pH levels. This upright grower works well on nutrient-poor and disturbed soils. Very little change in green appearance from wet vs. dry states but some shriveling is apparent. Male cups offer bright orange-red-bronze colors. Sporophytes have shiny, deep maroon, cylindrical-shaped capsules. Although it will grow in the shade, Atrichum angustatum prefers direct or partial sun exposures and rarely gets more than an inch tall. So, Atrichum a. is versatile in potential planting locations. Its cousin, Atrichum undulatum plants are slightly bigger in size, growing taller than one inch and the leaves are more translucent. Atrichum species grow great from fragmentation planting methods.

All live mosses, lichens and native plants have either been rescued from high-impact locations or cultivated in our Mossery. We promote the use of these plants for LIVE moss projects and sustainable landscapes. Some mosses will come with soil attached while others, particularly prostrate-growing types, may have very little soil attached to their tiny rhizoids.

Mosses are shipped via Priority Mail through the US Postal Service. Most deliveries occur within 1 week. Mountain Moss will assume the costs of insuring your order. Please notify us if you encounter any issues or your delivery is lost.

Make sure to check moisture levels when your moss tray arrives. Fluff mosses with your hands. Rehydrate as needed and keep moist, but not soggy, until planted. If possible, stage your mosses outdoors, rather than inside locations. Air conditioning or heat will dry out mosses quickly, and therefore, require more attention to keep them fresh.

Since florists and crafters treat most mosses as dead elements, we discourage the purchase of our LIVE mosses for these types of floral or craft projects. We request that buyers keep our mosses alive and thriving in sustainable landscapes or containers that feature the beauty of live, green moss colonies.
