    The best tree moss for mossarium, model make, and tiny terrarium scapes in our opinion. The largest of our tree moss growing to 3–6 cm tall, Thamnobryum alopecurum is a full shade, high humidity moss that attaches to wood and rock, and will also grow in sandy non-acidic soil. It has a complex woody rhizome system making it very sturdy allowing it to grow vertically on a long woody stem like a miniature tree. We have managed to attache this moss to rubber, coconut coil carpet, or most vertical substrates to make a stunning moss wall that looks amazing in a water feature. New growth comes up from the rhizomes.

    Watch this video about Fox-tail feature moss and it’s uses:

    We sell Thamnobryum alopecurum as a grown moss in many dimensions, and now as kokedama moss balls! (Our kokedama are unique in the fact that we use substrate inside a hessian bag and on the outside, we use living moss!)
    we also sell the correct "Growing Substrate" for this moss in 100g bags equal to 10x20cm carpet of moss to help you give your moss the best environment.

    If you want to attach moss vertically?
    We sell Thamnobryum alopecurum moss stitched to 2 supports in 10x20cm carpets
    - Hessian cloth for extra use which can be stapled to a tree! Or glued to wall with out hurting the rhizome! this allows the moss time to grow over its hessian cloth and new growth will attach naturally. Hessian cloth is biodegradable.

    Fox-tail Feather moss is about the largest of our tree-like mosses (3–6 cm tall), and typical plants do indeed resemble miniature trees. The upright stems bear small (less than 2 mm long),
    triangular, scale-like leaves whereas the branches have dark green leaves 1.5–2.5 mm long, which are egg-shaped and have an acute tip. The nerve is very robust. Coarse teeth at the tip of the branch leaves are easily visible under a hand lens and, in good light, the rounded leaf cells are visible. Capsules are very occasionally produced.
    T. alopecurum grows on rocks by streams and rivers, often at or just above the normal water level, and on shaded coastal and inland rocks. It also grows on the ground,
    coppice stools and tree bases in at least mildly base-rich woodland. Detached balls of T. alopecurum are sometimes found in some quantity on woodland floors.
