    You must be looking for sphagnum moss. They sell it at Sarracenia Northwest. The is a very reliable place to shop. I buy from them often. ^_^

    the rockcap and fern mosses are sold in approx sq ft sheets - its live and can be put right on the soil surface of your terrarium/vivarium. The cushion moss is in 0.25 sqft clumps - "cushions" We dont sell moss from seed however the starter pack is dormant moss of each type in a sealed pack -- just put into your tank wet it down and make sure it gets some light and it should come out of dormancy.

    hope that helps.

    Is Cushion Moss (Leucobryum) compatible with my Carniverous plants? Would it survive here in Lauderdale. I grow my CPs outdoors under 70% shade screen (12 hours of sun at this time of year) and they do quite well.

    Sphagnum moss is the recommended moss for use with CPs. It provides the right acidity for the plants without crowding them out of the pot like carpet moss can.

    I would avoid any use of carpet moss with CP species! Most of my efforts are spent on removing and preventing the miserable stuff! If you want to use live moss, it needs to be Sphagnum.
