    green moss from store

    I bought some Green moss that says its from the rainforest and is for decoration. It is at all possible to revive this by soaking in water and possibly use for CPS? Ither way, think it would be cool to have live green moss in my garden.
    Quit reading my mind!

    If so, you don't wanna use it.................

    tropical rainforest of the pacific northwest
    there is no tropical rainforest in the pacific northwest.
    that doesn't even make sense.
    If it's green, don't use it.
    dried long fiber sphagnum is tan.
    I made the mistake of using the wrong moss as a newbie.

    actually yes..there is a rainforest in the pacific northwest.
    not "tropical" technically, but it is considered a rain forest.
    a "temperate rainforest"

    I agree with the "dont use the moss" advice though..
    if you dont know for sure what it is, dont use it.

    There are loads of that moss in my forest like I was considering selling about as much as you could fit into a 2 cubic foot box for $10 then shipping on an auction site but it will not work I think. There are loads of that moss here like tons.

    The simple rule of thumb is:

    If it doesn't say "Sphagnum" on the package somewhere don't use it.
