LIVE sphagnum moss with long fibre, with green tips and brown stem, which if wet and kept in partial shade will begin to produce new green tips.
Sphagnum is useful as a cultivation substrate if wrapped around the roots of carnivorous plants, also useful for cutting plants as it keeps the cuttings hydrated and improves the rooting of the plants, also thanks to its antifungal function.

We remind you that this type of Live Sphagnum is NOT suitable for cultivation of epiphytic orchids on a raft, for this use it is necessary to use dry Chilean sphagnum .

  • It is ideal for use in terrariums. Reptiles, amphibians and insects including frogs, lizards, snakes or turtles find a comfortable bed in sphagnum fibers, which provides a humid climate throughout the terrarium.
  • It is ideal for the garden. In a few weeks it will be able to create a thick and soft natural coat resistant to winter temperatures. If kept outside, place it in a shaded place.
  • It is ideal for orchids. If mixed with pieces of bark and a little soil it is perfect as a substrate for orchids, just place the pot in a place with lots of light and always keep the bottom moist.
  • It is ideal for conifer bonsai.

It is PERFECT for carnivorous plants. It looks like a spongy green carpet that is soft to the touch, which retains water and releases it slowly, thus maintaining the ideal humidity level for plant growth. Carnivores grow in marshy soil with a very high humidity rate, so the use of sphagnum moss is strongly recommended for almost all types.

  • Sarracenia: pay a little attention, this plant does not like to live with sphagnum moss even if it undoubtedly benefits from it. Remember that the addition of sphagnum causes an alteration of the acid values ??of the peat, and this type of carnivora does not tolerate sudden changes in the pH of the soil.
  • Drosere: the use of sphagnum is not mandatory, although strongly recommended.
  • Mexican butterworts Pinguicola: they grow in basic soil, i.e. not very acidic, sphagnum would make the entire substrate too acidic and would inevitably lead to the death of these plants.
