What is Live Feather Moss?

Feather Moss is a fast growing ground cover plant that grows all over the world. Our stock is responsibly sourced from Europe to ensure long term sustainability; dried out to remove unwanted pests and then carefully packaged. This process ensures that it is 100% safe for terrarium use. Dried moss is not dead; it can resume photosynthesis within just one hour of being hydrated!  

The benefits of Live Feather Moss

Moss always looks visually stunning in any enclosure, it quickly and simply adds a natural element for your animal to explore. Not only is this a way of providing ground cover for any woodland or tropical setting, it is perfect for increasing and maintaining humidity levels. It can easily be re-hydrated, and under the correct environmental conditions it will begin to grow and spread.

Whilst wild mosses might be used, all wild plants in the UK are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act (1981). Some species are specially protected against picking, uprooting, damage, and sale. Our Feather moss is responsibly sourced from Europe and offers a safer and stress-free alternative for you and your exotic pet. Due to the drying process, our Moss will also have minimal risk of introducing unwanted pests such as slugs and snails into your controlled environment.
