Perfect for use in bio-active and naturalistic terrariums for decoration, ground cover, and to help raise habitat humidity levels for moisture loving reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. Can also be used in a damp box for egg laying or shedding.
Terrarium Moss or Sphagnum Moss as it is also known 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 rinsed and then carefully packaged. This process ensures that it is 100% safe for terrarium use. Over time the moss may dry out and lose some of its colour; but it can resume photosynthesis within just one hour of being hydrated!
This moss is perfect for increasing and maintaining humidity levels. It can easily be re-hydrated, and under the correct environmental conditions it will continue to grow and spread. Moss always quickly and simply adds a natural element for your animal to explore and is a way of providing ground cover for any woodland or tropical setting.
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 Terrarium Moss is responsibly sourced from Europe and offers a safer and stress-free alternative for you and your exotic pet. Due to the processes involved in packing, our moss will also have minimal risk of introducing unwanted pests such as slugs and snails into your controlled environment.
There are several application methods that can be used.
