    I got mine from IKEA too! Pretty okay, but the moss is dry. There are also some twigs inside it.

    Is it really that good? So far I've been happy with my $5 Horti Sphagnum moss.

    Hi all,
    Have used both, the following are some comparison:

    Horti:Schultz

    Colour=Dark:Brown
    Moisture=Slightly Moistry
    Volume packed=Smaller:Larger
    Volume wet=1:2
    Impurity= Yes:Yes
    Price=1:2

    The Horti Peat Moss is highly decomposed, while Schultz is less.

    The resulting wet volume offsets the price difference.

    Horti tends to encourage green algae growth, no sure yet with Schultz.

    I would chose Schultz, considering longer term usage; “less decomposed, takes longer to break down”

    I agree with JK in that the Horti peat tends to encourage algae growth.

    Exclamation

    I wonder if it's the peat or the silica sand that's encouraging algae growth...'cos my river sand/peat mixture is not having the same amount of algae although I used the same Horti peat.

    No problems with my silica sand. I wash them like crazy and even sterlize them by pouring boiling water on them before using. Yes, boiling RO water.

    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"
