    Fissidens fontanus Is a full shade aquatic moss that grows fully submerged, attaches beautifully to wood or rock, we also sell natural tufa rock which are perfect for growing aquatic moss.

    All our moss is dehydrated for shipping, and Phoenix moss survives months out or water dehydrated for months in the wild. this is to insure that moss arrives healthy with no mold or decay, you simply rehydrate the moss as you attach her to your substrate and her leaves will unfold she will start photosynthesis.

    All our moss is grown in our nursery through propagation or spores, we grow the moss as naturally as possible (on organic compost not agar agar) this makes a moss that healthy and survives transplanting) we have a rock wall that is high humidity, we attach the moss onto the wall and into the cracks, and the moss grows attached to the rock, when we harvest the pieces of moss are lifted off with the roots (on the carpet of moss you will see the roots are brown not green like the leaves, it is important to use the roots to attach the moss easily to your substrate) we then make the dimension you are asking for by layering the moss on to a rack, where she is dehydrated for shipping. This makes a carpet of the dimension you ask for that is lightly woven together. You can cut the carpet while still dehydrated and attach it to your surface, wood or rock, then make sure the moss is well attached by using mesh or fishing line, we think mesh is best, as the moss quickly grows through the mesh, and once the moss has grown through the mesh you would never know the mesh was there.

    We have over 50 beautiful moss, liverworts and lichen species in stock right now!! Check out our shop to see more :)

    Watch this video on the Phoenix moss we sell, how it look when it arrives and how to attach it to rock or wood:

    Phoenix moss also known as Fissidens fontanus, rightfully got its name because of its appearance, resembling a frozen fountain. This moss grows in all directions from the central point, like a gushing fountain. Even if the single frond is left on the rock or driftwood, after a couple of months it will form a spherical mound with a very unique structure of dark green color. This is what attracts the attention of aquarium lovers. There's no other way of decoration with this moss, however, except for these mounds. It doesn't matter how you plant it or how you trim it, it will always tend to form a spherical shape, just because this is the way it grows. In this regard, it's similar to pellia (Monosolenium tenerum), but fissidens is not as fragile as pellia and if necessary can be moved from one part of the aquarium to another.

    Phoenix moss is a large aquarium moss. Its leaf can reach up to 2 mm in length. Such a big leaf is too tough for Seamese algae eaters, famous moss lovers, and thus they can be safely kept together in the same aquarium. Like any other aquarium moss, phoenix moss can grow under a low level of light (up to 0.5 watts/l) and with only little addition of nutrients and CO2. Growth rate of this moss is quite slow in comparison with other mosses cultivated in the aquarium. A little injection of liquid fertilizer and CO2 (up to 5 mg/l), however, can accelerate the growth rate and helps to grow the lush mounds of Fissidens fontanus.

    Сreating an aquascape, Fissidens fontanus is better to be placed closer to the “focal points” and not in the corners of the aquarium, as it will definitely attract the viewer's attention even against the background of other mosses. The exception may be cases when the whole aquarium is planted with Fissidens fontanus that also looks great. Phoenix moss easily attaches to rocks and driftwood with its rhizoids.
