This moss is perfect for small/mini terrariums and many other craft projects needing moss. All moss is pesticide free so it can be used in vivariums as well. I harvest this on my 12 acres up in the Ozark Mountains. When moss is in the dormant stage(inn need of water) it will turn a lighter lime green but is still alive. These are individual moss pillows...they grow this way and get to be the size I sell in other listings. These are NOT torn into small pieces...you can see the close up photos here of what you are getting.
Pillow/Cushion Moss Facts
1.Moss has no root system it anchors itself to the ground using rhizoids.
2.Moss has no vascular tissue for sending nutrients and water throughout the plant.
3.Moss gets its nourishment from the air, photosynthesis, and water.
4.Under stressful conditions moss & lichens are able to temporarily stop growing and go dormant.
5.Moss reproduces by means of spores which are very dependent on an ample supply of moisture. As moss does not take up moisture through a root system, it is much happier receiving moisture through misting or rainwater instead of a drenching.
