    1 gallon of LIVE Sphagnum! Whoo! (Winner macamus3) $15

    Hey guys. One gallon of live sphagnum that will be collected from the bog the day I ship. Nice stuff, too. It's wild, so there will be hitch hikers and it may have a little of the native media on it when it arrives. It will probably have a few weeds/sticks/leaves in it.

    Here's a pic of some stuff I just got rid of. This is not the moss you will get, but an example.









    Winner pays flat-rate shipping since it will be about 3 pounds (that's 8 dollars) and can PM me. Let's start the bidding at 5 bucks. I'll pack it in little sheets so it will be easy to lay it out flat in a bog or something. Since this moss is at the mountain house, I will ship it within 3-5 days of getting the shipping money.

    Did we ever find out if it's kosher to send live sphagnum to cali? This can't be a bid (I'm not on my computer so I don't want to log on,) but it's not just chit-chat. Really!

    I couldn't make heads or tails of it, but there is a number in Sacramento you can call is listed here:

    http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/phpps/pe/summary.htm

    The restriction on plants and growing media from GA is:

    "Soil, growing media, humus, compost, manure (except commercial); plants with roots in soil, grass sod; crowns, bulbs, corms, tubers, etc. with soil; and any conveyance capable of harboring Japanese beetle."

    The question is I suppose is if Sphagnum moss can harbor Japanese beetles.

    I would say no. They don't feed on that kind of vegetation. Thank you for looking that up Not A Number.
