Live Sphagnum Moss

Availability: Out of stock

Enough live sphagnum moss to start your own colony. Several strands (perhaps 8-10 or more) of living, green, growing sphagnum moss.


Sphagnum moss is slow growing, so we can't supply large quantities from our own cultivated stock. Instead, we offer several nice strands of live, growing sphagnum moss that you can use to start your own colony. Although live sphagnum can be grown on a substrate of carnivorous plant potting medium, it's not necessary. Sphagnum can be grown on no medium at all, and as it grows it will use older parts of itself as a base to grow upon. This sphagnum moss usually grows well in cooler weather with plenty of sunlight. However if the weather is warm, it will grow better in dappled shade or bright indirect light and may burn in direct sunlight if the temperature is too high.

Fantastic top layer moss for growing your Venus Fly Traps
This moss grows wonderfully green. I took off one star because the orders I received were half brown when I got them. With a little sun and humidity, they started growing, and are now a wonder green top layer for my Venus Fly Traps. Be patient with this moss (it's not dead!) and you will be rewarded.

Got a BIG bag of healthy live green sphagnum moss!
Despite the description which says "Several strands (perhaps 8-10)," Matt and Leah were extra generous and sent a generous sized bag full of very green and healthy looking live sphagnum moss. Order yours today and you won't be disappointed!

Truely Stunning!
I ordered a bag of live Sphagnum about a month ago, and I am sincerely amazed! There is much more than advertised, a large bagful. This moss has to be very healthy prior to shipment, it has grown non-stop for me despite changing growing conditions. I am very satisfied with my purchase, FlyTrapStore does not dissapoint!

Moss looks healthy!
Ordered this moss to grow in my salamander terrarium. I gently separated all of the pieces into separate strains and placed them around the terrarium. (Which was already planted with wet peat moss covered with a thin layer of dead sphagnum moss from home depot)

I made the mistake of watering the moss/terarrium with dechlorinated tap water, but after a few days I realized what I had done. I took the moss out, washed it with distilled water, replaced ALL of the substrate in the terrarium with new peat & distilled water only, and placed the live sphagnum back on top. I have been misting it daily with distilled water. It's still alive, but not as green as when I got it. I'm sure I put it through quite a bit of stress, not to mention my salamanders seem to enjoy laying on it. Dunno if that's going to inhibit growth or not :-\

Either way, I'm very pleased with my purchase! The hand written note/instructions (which addressed me by name) was a really cool touch. Not something you see often in online sales. Thanks for the fantastic customer service! If I killed this batch of moss I'll definely be coming back here for round 2 :P
