Diphyscium -- Exclusive Opportunity -- SHADE

Product Description

Diphysicium foliosum, is a small, dark green moss that holds soil in place with its compact growth patterns. This upright grower does particularly well on nutrient-poor and disturbed soils. This species has distinctive reproductive structures that grow close to the ground and they are shaped like little urns in contrast with most moss species that have taller sporophytic structures with capsules on the tops. Best of all, these Diphyscium moss colonies are "sporing" right now with tiny spore clouds appearing when touched. Mountain Moss is offering this exclusive opportunity for our customers to purchase this rare and unusual moss species. 

IMPORTANT – READ before placing your order. Due to agricultural restrictions, Mountain Moss does not ship this moss product to the following states: California, Louisiana and Mississippi.

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.
