  • Details
    Common Haircap Moss (polytrichum commune) is a large moss that grows quite tall in the wild, it can be found in huge soft mats in woodland areas.

    Haircap Moss like all mosses don't have a root system, instead they have hair like strands called Rhyzoids, which they use to grip to surfaces and substrates. Instead of roots, moss soaks up water through their tiny leaves which makes them ideal candidates for terrariums and other humid setups, like paludariums, vivariums, and ripariums. Although survival is never guaranteed.

    All my moss is grown and harvested from it's natural environment in Southwestern Vermont in humus rich woodland.

    All mosses are hand picked, cleaned and soaked by myself in fresh mountain water. I do my best to pick out all the pine needles, twigs and foliage but some may remain, along with tiny hitchhikers.

    You will receive a similar amount shown in the pictures in a sealed bag. 4oz cup portion.

    Moss can withstand freezing temperatures and ships extremely well. Unfortunately I can't ship moss internationally at this time.

    So many moss stems that go to several indoor plantings. Quick and securely packaged delivery. Advise for planting. A gift of moss, also generous. This is a wonderful business. So very satisfactory. Thanks Green Mountain!

    I love this moss. Healthy and beautiful! Fast shipping and well packaged. Highly recommended.

    I was thrilled to see that the ‘ trees” really look like tiny pine trees! I’m looking forward to planting my little terrarrium. Both mosses arrived safely and alive! Thanks for getting them to me a quickly as you did!

    Very generous moss bunches, enough to spread around a few separate terrariums. Well packed and quickly delivered- and a gift moss included! When I need moss I go here first and am never disappointed!! Thank you, Green Mountain!
