Product Description

Bryoandersonia illecebra is sometimes called worm moss or spoon moss. Take a trip back in time to the 60s when shag carpet was popular. Bryoandersonia has the same appearance. Or some people think it looks like small worms. If you take a close up look, you’ll see the leaves curve/cup around the stem, and therefore, scientists refer to this species as spoon moss. Viewing the details, you can observe a translucency in the leaves that adds extra light reflectance and color intensity. Bryoandersonia has an almost electric emerald green vibrancy with major golden overtones. A very shiny moss. In the shade, it will be green. In sunnier locations, it will have a mottled coloration of greens and golds. The plants are loosely connected to each other in colonies. Use care when handling/planting Bryoandersonia because the colonies may fall apart. A terrestrial moss, Bryoandersonia can live on rich soil, rocks or tree stumps. A major plus is that Bryoandersonia tolerates a high heat index.

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.
