Product Description

The term “fluffy” is the most accurate description of Hylocomium brevistore. A light green shade, plants have a tendency to rise above the soil surface in loose organization even though it is a technically a sideways grower. A shade lover, Hylocomium tolerates some partial sunspots that may occur during the day. When dry, its color gets lighter (perhaps with yellow overtones) yet the plant appearance changes very little. Interleaf the edges when using solid planting method for instant gratification. If you prefer to wait and watch it grow in, then spread adequate distribution of fragments or plugs in your  desired location. This moss species normally grows on the ground but it can also be used to decorate forest driftwood logs or stumps.

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 and mounds, may have very little soil attached to their tiny rhizoids.

Each moss tray order is approximately 10" x 20” in size providing at least 1.25 sq. ft. of product. Substrate fabric is included providing easy installation for gardeners and landscapers, if desired. Hard plastic tray may not be included in the shipment, unless specifically requested by the customer.

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 until planting, 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.
