  • Great moss for all vivarium applications
  • Holds up to 20 times it's weight in water
  • Great for tree frogs, hermit crabs, day geckos, invertebrates and more

New Zealand Sphagnum Moss is preferred over any other type of moss for terrarium use due to its unique softness and amazing moisture-holding ability. This lush carpet-like moss can hold moisture up to 20 times its dry weight! New Zealand Sphagnum Moss is great for live plants and incredibly long-lasting. After other substrates have decomposed, this moss remains usable and can be washed and reused several times. This attractive moss is harvested using sustainable methods to ensure that it will be around for future generations!

For use with most species of frogs, toads, salamanders, newts and invertebrates including Hermit Crabs. Can also be used with small snakes including Green Snakes, Ribbon Snakes, Garter Snakes, etc.

Features:

  • Holds more water and stays moist longer than any other type of moss
  • Natural compounds in moss prevent it from decomposing in humid environments
  • Excellent top substrate for Zoo Med's Naturalistic Terrariums

Instructions:
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.
