    You will be receiving Lescuraea mutabilis which has been dehydrated for shipping in a package bag. Mosses can remain alive even during periods of drought, resuming photosynthesis when moistened again by rain or even fog. All you have to do is spray generously the moss when it arrives and she will come back to life in a few seconds.

    Our clay/Alfisols discs are inoculated with Lescuraea mutabilis spores and mother plant which, once wet, will grow after 3 weeks into moss that then connects together into a carpet and spread from there. The benefit of growing from spores is 1- they grow and thrive in the environment, if terrarium or moss garden, or water feature 2- the clay/Alfisols discs can be molded into any shape once wet and will stick to any surface. You can also divide the discs as they are inoculated with thousands of spores. To give the spores the correct substrate 3 discs is equal to 30x30cm of the substrate, you simply mix the clay disc into the substrate and spread it into a 30x30cm carpet.

    This rare and beautiful carpeting moss has a rich dark emerald/gold velvety allure.
    Rather robust pleurocarp moss with main branches of 3-7 cm long make a thick silky soft cushion carpet.
    The main stem is prostrate, more or less pinnate and the branches are erected.
    Leaves more or less applied to the stem (when dry), lanceolate, gradually concave cuminate.
    Presence of two folds longitudinal in the lower half of the leaf; the margins are recurved.

    Sporophyte formed by a erect silk less than 1 cm length, with an erect, cylindrical capsule with a conical operculum.

    Habitats
    This hemi-sciaphilic species is confined to the subalpine Alfisols substrate and mainly encountered in subalpine beech groves and thickets of associated rowan trees.
