This Moss doesn"t change it's Form when it is submerged, very much at all from it's emersed growth form. This moss forms tufts of erect stems up to 4 centimeters tall. When it is wet it is bright green and the leaves are loose. When it dries the leaves wrap around the stem and it becomes reddish brown in color.
Moss is the best way to make aquariums and terrariums look vibrant and natural. They add so much texture, colour and contrast.
The fact that they have no roots or water vessels means they tend to like high humidity and a consistent water supply – which makes them great for closed terrariums. They not only like high humidity, but they really help to stabilise humidity too. So your other tropical plants will love them.
In addition to enhancing the aesthetics of a freshwater aquarium, mosses provide a number of other benefits. For example, mosses contribute to improved water quality by absorbing nitrates and other nutrients from the water column. Be sure to add springtails to your terrarium to help keep the plants clean and mold free, we also have them if you would like to add them to your cart!!
