Moss can be used either dry or moistened as needed for various applications. Moss can be used to create attractive hiding places for lizards and snakes to reduce stress and make them feel secure. Also excellent for use around the base of live plants in terrariums.
Cleaning: Our moss can be washed and reused several times before replacing with new moss. Frequency of cleaning will depend on the number if animals in your terrarium. Amphibians absorb water through their skin and are sensitive to toxins in their environment. If you detect a foul odor, or suspect that the moss may be dirty, you should clean or replace the moss.
To Clean: Remove the moss from your terrarium and place in a bucket of clean, dechlorinated water. Swirl the moss in the water, then remove it and "wring out" as much water as possible. Repeat this process until the moss appears clean and no foul odor is detected. Our moss should last 3 or 4 cleanings before it needs to be replaced with new moss.
