    The quality of the Better-Gro Orchid Moss sphagnum has gone way down in the last few years. It's full of twigs, leaves and a long wiry hairlike fiber. Lots of scrawny looking strands of moss too. The quality is about the same as what the domestic Mosser-Lee was 8-10 years ago.


    The twigs or reeds on the right all came from the small hand full of Better-Gro on the left. Four years ago you'd see less than a third if any of that amount.

    mine looks amazing actually
    0 twigs and it just looks good all around
    it says "premium quality" or premium grade on it, not sure if they sell a lower grade or something

    There are also clumps where the moss is black - these get tossed out.

    Doesn't that mean they aren't harvesting it sustainably if the quality has gone down over time?
