  • Details
    As the season advances, the baby tree moss is growing into young trees. You'll receive a mixture of this season's tree moss varying in size.

    Climacium Dendroides / Americanum, or Tree Moss, as it's more commonly known, is an extremely beautiful moss that resembles a miniature tree, perfect for your terrarium projects. This large moss grows under and around pine trees, on boulders and rocks in shady areas, and under the leaves and pine needles.

    Climacium moss, like all mosses, don't have a root system, but unlike other mosses, it grows on runners just below the substrate, which can be divided and portioned. 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 its natural environment in Southwestern Vermont in humus-rich woodland.

    All mosses are handpicked, 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.

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