    Long Fibre Sphagnum. AKA Orchid moss or dried Sphagnum moss

    Since you mentioned orchid moss, I've seen "green moss" for sale. Is that ok to use for CPs?

    NO green moss. Green moss is sheet moss and it has usually been treated with something that keeps it that green colour. While that product does not tend to be damaging to orchids it can be toxic to CPs

    Thanks for the clarification Pyro I was suspicious of green moss too, but just wanted to confirm.

    There is something that is referred to as decorative moss in plastic bags that I've read being toxic to CP's.
