  • Details
    Hypnum Imponens is an attractive carpeting moss with pinnate glossy leaves. This shiny light green and yellow moss grows over fallen trees, the forest floor and rocks.

    Brocade Moss like all mosses don't have a root system, they have tiny 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 (large handful).

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

    Repeat customer here, the moss I ordered came in excellent condition as always. I’m extremely happy with every order that I’ve received. I love the interesting variety of moss available. The free samples are an added bonus too. I’m new to the hobby of terrarium building and this place has me hooked. The seller is top notch.

    Once again, another fabulous purchase from GMM! I keep coming back for more because the quality is impeccable! Thank you!

    The generous amount of healthy moist moss has made me a very happy customer. The extra gift included is a joy as well. A very excellent shop.
