Caring for Sphagnum Moss Grass

  • Before you begin to plant or grow your moss, you will need to start by taking cuttings that are actively growing.
  • These should come from the top four inches of the plant.
  • Be sure that you cut these sections no bigger than an inch in size.
  • Once the moss is ready to go, you can start preparing the area. Be sure that you acquire a good quality of peat moss.
  • If you are using a mini bog, make it no deeper than twenty inches.
  • Sow with a one to ten ratio. This means that the cuttings that are taken from a single square foot should be used to seed ten square feet.
  • If you use a light layer of mulch, there is a good chance that this will encourage the growth rate of your moss.
  • Be sure that you mulch just deep enough to keep the moss from becoming dried out, but shallow enough to allow light to reach your moss.
  • When you are dealing with a larger area, you can use straw successfully.
  • It is very important that you pay attention to the water level.
  • You should occasionally flood the moss with no more than an inch of water.
  • When you are just beginning to grow your moss, keep the water level to a point that will keep your moss from drying out.
  • If the tips become brown, raise the water level. Do not use hard water for your sphagnum moss.
  • The temperature should never get above seventy degrees or below fifty for your moss. A basin is usually the best place to start them off.
  • If you are able to allow more light conditions, you will find that your moss will become more colorful.
  • Because sphagnum has no roots, it can grow over just about anything as long as the conditions are right for it to properly flourish.
  • You should always keep in mind that sphagnum grows naturally in swamps, bogs and dens.
  • This means that you should try to mimic this environment as much as possible to keep your sphagnum moss both healthy and happy.
