    Fresh green LFS looks like lots of little stars. Most of it is brown, which is the moss very slowly decomposing into peat. On top is the fresh green stuff.

    The whole lot should be sodden, not dry like other mosses.

    Some "orchid moss" you see sold is dried Spanish moss (actually a tillansia). Make sure to read labels...it needs to say "Long-fiber Sphagnum Moss". "Decorative" is usually a giveaway its not gonna be good for CPs.
