Rhodobryum ontariense MIX Tray -- Shade -- Exclusive! Waterfalls, Focal Features

Product Description

Rhodobryum ontariense has been called Rose Moss (and there is another species named Rhodobryum roseum most often found in Europe). This beautiful moss resembles green flower blossoms in its hydrated state. The medium-green leaves form a rosette reminiscent of a tiny flower. The most important part about planting this moss is that it changes dramatically upon dehydration, so installing a supplemental watering system may be a necessity. In the Appalachian mountains, this moss grows most often at the base of trees or on top of rocks. Mosses should be planted whole in a shady, densely-watered location. NOTE: Other moss species such as Thuidium are intertwined with the Rhodobryum colonies. (Not pure Rhodobryum). 

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

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, 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.
