How We Protect Your Plants For Transit
We sell only bare root plants. We dip the roots in tera-sorb silicone gel to retain ample moisture for transit and surround with plastic. This provides superior protection for plants in transit for up to 12 days.
Upon Receipt Of Your Plants
Open your plants and inspect the same day received. We offer 3 days to report any problems with your order. Bare root plants need to be planted within 2-3 days of receipt unless weather prohibits. Store in a cool place and keep roots moist and covered with plastic until they can be planted. Water daily for the first week after planting.
Cushion Moss grows in Soft, Dense, Spongy Cushions.
Cushion moss is pale green and has a white sheen when it’s dry. When it’s watered, the light green color returns. When installed, it makes a beautiful green carpet on both commercial and residential properties. It is also fantastic in terrariums. Because of its round shape, a gardener can use cushion moss in many beautiful ways along walkways, around trees, and in woodland gardens. It is just the thing to add sculptural interest to a fair and shady Japanese garden.
Cushion moss does well in sandy soils and poor, acidic soils that are kept moist.
Cushion Moss grows anywhere in the world that’s Cool, Shaded, and Somewhat Damp.
Unlike other plants, moss doesn’t produce flowers but produces spores after a somewhat complicated reproductive process. It has neither roots nor vascular tissues and has to secure itself to the ground with rhizoid filaments. Rhizoids allow the plant to be easily broken up and transplanted. Because it doesn’t have vascular tissue, moss has to get nutrients from the water.
Cushion Moss is a lonely, cool moss.
How to Plant: Remove all other types of plant life from the area, dig in two inches of peat moss and drench until the field is muddy. Gently rinse the clump of cushion moss, then add it into the area. Press to remove any air pockets.
It is shipped as a bare root plant. You can keep cushion moss in the refrigerator or even the freezer until it’s ready to be planted.
Cushion Moss is a soft plant.
