Rock Cap Moss
Rock Cap Moss is a different moss because it needs no soil to grow. This moss can be seen growing along brick walls, walkways, planters, rocks and anything it can adhere. The uppermost part is a bright green color and somewhat flat in appearance. The underside has little roots. The moss can gather all the nutrients it needs by air and moisture. This moss prefers shade but can also grow in moderate sun as long as it gets adequate moisture. It becomes thick and in clusters or clumps. The moss can purchase it, and once one receives it, it can be broken apart which helps the growing to start. Plant this moss when the temperature is stable. Avoid planting it in the late fall or early spring because the weather is not at its best and will fluctuate too much. This moss needs a stable temperature climate so that it can grow well.
This moss gets its name because of how it looks and grows; it grows best along the top of rocks. Water this most frequently in the first few months until well established. Once this moss gets a good growth, it is easy to grow and maintain.
Rock Cap moss ships year round.
ReviewsHeatherI have been looking for the PERFECT terrarium moss for my fire-bellied toads and I do believe that I have found it! This Rock Cap Moss has been excellent in texture, color, and ease of installation. The price was great and it arrived in a timely manner. I ordered the smallest quantity, which turned out to be the exact amount that I needed for my terrarium (20-gallon tank.) It wasn't crunchy dry like the stuff I used to buy at the pet stores. Instead it was just dry enough but still had its vibrant green color and I soaked each piece and then squeezed them out (not all the way) before installation. I have been misting it each day and so far so good. I love it and my toads love it! It actually matches perfectly with their little fairytale background that has moss in the picture. I will definitely be ordering more when it's time to replace. Thank you so much!! :)
