    Live Sphagnum Moss

    Hey guys, I am offering up some live Sphagnum moss for trade. I currently have three portions that I would like to trade off for Drosera, Pings, or Utrics that I don't have. The portions are roughly a cup each (though the way I pack it in the measuring cup and then top off the bag, it will be more than one cup). I'm not looking for anything particular (other than a P. gypsicola) just as long as it's not on my grow list. I'm sure something can be worked out .

    The moss that I'm offering is a native species to North Carolina and can tolerate the heat well. It must stay moist to fairly wet though to do well in extreme heat. It did well for me last summer with temperatures hitting over 100 regularly, but it had to stay fairly moist. It also withstands the winters here well. This moss has been collected from the wild on family owned property. Care was taken to not harm the area, only the top portion of the moss was clipped. It was not pulled up. Again, the moss is wild collected from family owned property.

    Due to the moss being wild collected, it won't be in pristine condition. I have hand picked out all the leaves and grass that I can. There still might be a small amount left mixed in the moss, but for the most part it is clean.

    Please feel free to contact me with offers. I keep my messages checked.

    Here's my grow list: http://terraforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=112573





    Thanks for looking,
    Crystal

    Might you be interested in some pygmy droseras - D. occidentalis x pulchella?

    Let me know.

    Everyone that has PMed me should have heard back from me this morning.

    Brokken,
    Thanks for the offer on the pygmies. I think I want to hold off on them right now. Thanks again!

    Looks like I have about two portions left. I should add that I'm also open to any Ping leaf pullings that I don't have. Come on guys, you know you want some moss!

    Hey guys,

    Just an update. I still have two portions left for trade. I've mostly been offered seed and gemmae. My concern with those items are the difference in shipping costs. I just would like the trade to be as close to equal on both sides as possible. The actual amount in the portions is negotiable. If need be, I can collect some more to complete the trade.

    A more recent picture,


    Thanks for looking,
    Crystal

    Hi Crissytal,

    I was actually referring to growing plants rather than gemmae. I don't know if that changes anything.
