    YUCK! Green dyed Long Fibered Sphagnum!

    I was at a plant nursery today and saw something most hideous, green dyed long fibered sphagnum moss. It was all they had. I didn't need any but if I did I'd have been going to look elsewhere. The stuff they dye and sell for plant arrangements is gross but this was somehow just plainly blasphemous! lol! I wonder if it would be able to sprout like the regular blond/reddish stuff after it has been dyed green?

    Have a look at this:

    The online photo makes it look like a totally other kind of plant material....

    In real life it is not that color with varying shades but rather the flat green of street signs!

    Is it really dyed green? Or is the bag just green-tinted plastic? I can't quite tell, the pic is kinda vague...

    Looks more like a green bag than green-dyed sphagnum.

    Oh. Well, then. Would they also bring harm to regular houseplants?

    I don't think I'll ever find out, the nursery/plant leasing shop my aunt works at has boring plants but at least has decent LFS. I was just shocked that was all they had in the orchid section for LFS at this place that has such nice / rare plants and an awesome selection of Jiffy seedling tray sizes that you can't even find on ebay.
