    Spanish moss

    So I was just wondering if this is true or not, are criggers found on Spanish moss that has been laying on the ground. compared to the moss hanging off of the trees.

    Also I read that if you boil the moss for a minute it will remove all of the microb critters within the moss.

    Just an aside, I distinctly remember reading something by a disgruntled author about how "Spanish Moss" is neither Spanish nor moss, lol...aren't common names fantastic?

    Don't boil it, it won't appreciate that very much. Also there probably isn't anything living in it that could bother you at all.






    @sermuncherIV

    Tillandsia usneoides is named after the genus Usnea, which is.... also not a moss. It's actually a lichen.
