    Sphagnum Moss ?

    I just buy live sphagnum moss. Is it fake or not? I put plants into distilled water and look like they love it. I hope they will survive when they are in medium without a lot of water. Welcome all comments. Thanks

    Best guess due to the barbed look:
    Sphagnum squarrosum

    Excellent for CP use, but will outgrow many small utrics.... a very nice, hardy, fast growing and fluffy species.
    One of my fav sphag species for Cp's is a squarrosum variant I call "super fluffy"

    "Super fluffy" has been widely distributed over the years by Crissy and others from TF
