Preparation of Sphagnum: Place sphagnum in a container of water and allow moss to swell and re-hydrate completely. Using warm water can speed the process up.
IMPORTANT: The tighter the moss is packed, the less water it holds. If the sphagnum is packed too tightly, it will shed water faster. Never allow the moss to dry out completely. The continuously moist moss medium provides a convenient and beneficial source of constant humidity to the young plant.
Sphagnum Moss is preferred over any other type of moss for terrarium use due to its unique softness and amazing moisture-holding ability. Harvested using sustainable methods to ensure that it will be around for future generations. Moss is great for most species of frogs, toads, salamanders, newts, invertebrates, and small snakes.
