    This stuff is used with silk flowers and other artificial plants.

    Yes, traditionally dyed moss is used for those arrangements. Yet there it was, lurking in the orchid section along with sacks of orchid bark and the words "ideal for orchids" printed on the bag. My second image link shows the brand they had at Linder's. I guess it's not earth shattering unless they quit selling the undyed stuff everywhere. Which still may not be earth shattering, unless the dying process will prevent it from germinating... That would suck.

    I sort of considered the living spahgnum as an indicator of my growing conditions. If my moss started to go downhill I could figure that something was "off" and needed attention. Either the R/O filter needed to be changed, my lamps were too old, etc. Live moss is more finicky than Neps and serves as a good early warning system. If this dyed moss product won't germinate that'll eliminate that little trick.

    It seems a natural progression, a simple step up from those "naturally" dyed landscape mulches. But we don't want green, now we want that ugly red. Oh, wait, no we don't.
    that makes no logic

    Yeah, they've got some wild colors deep into mulch season these days at Home Depot. Won't be long people will be mulching plants with their "team colors". lol!
