Sphagnum Moss retains moisture excellently & is useful and decorative in terrariums, orchids, pots, hanging baskets, floral arrangements, terrariums & reptile housing.

Sphagnum moss is the whole moss plant collected alive along with connected dead, but non-decomposed moss parts. Dried sphagnum moss is not generally used in potting mixes but may be used as a top dressing of shredded moss parts over seeds in germination trays. The moss is reported to have some fungicidal activity.

Sphagnum moss has been used extensively for packing around roots of bare root plants and for shipping plants. Another popular application of sphagnum moss has been the lining of hanging basket frames. When frames are used a moistened layer of sphagnum moss about 1 to 2 inches thick is placed around the inside of the wire mess or plastic mesh frame to contain the potting medium added inside the lining.
