    Like all plants, moss needs nitrogen, either gleaned from the soil and substrate or from water uptake. If your moss doesn’t get enough nutrients from rainfall or substrate a mild, organic fertilizer, such as one containing lactic acid from goat milk which non-protein nitrogen content is usually 5-8 % of total nitrogen. Signs your moss needs fertilization include spotty growth and poor color.

    If you want to attach moss vertically?
    We sell 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 roots! this allows the moss time to grow over its hessian cloth and new growth will attach naturally. Hessian cloth is biodegradable.
    - Plastic mesh for interior use, terrariums living walls and moss art, the plastic mesh can be glued to glass or rock, or any supports, without hurting the mosses roots. And hey presto! you have an instant moss wall!

    Our clay/Alfisols discs are inoculated with Ptilium crista-castrensis 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.

    We do Internation post tracking with every order. Your order will be packed safely and I'll send your Internation tracking number so you can follow your order travels to you :)

    This Nobel moss is very distinct, there is something extremely pleasing about the regularity of its branches, all the same size, and shape, overlapping and knitting together to form and thick carpet.

    The knights plume moss is light, bright green, with a golden sheer to its tips, erect or ascending shoots of this moss are long (typically 5 cm or more long) and particularly striking.
    The lower branches are all the same length, but branches become shorter towards the tip of the shoot, giving the plant the appearance of a tiny fern frond or feather.
    The leaves, about 2.5 mm long, taper from a broad base to a long, slender point that curves to one side, giving the whole leaf a rather hooked appearance.
    The leaf is strongly pleated and sometimes has a short, double nerve. The base of the leaf runs down onto the stem, but is usually torn off when the leaf is removed.
    Branch leaves are rather smaller than the stem leaves, somewhat less pleated and have a shorter, more curved tip.

    Substrate Ptilium crista-castrensis likes acid, damp, peaty or humus-rich soil in shaded situations on the ground and on boulders.

    You will be receiving our naturally dehydrated, mosses 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 quickly revive.
