Just sphagnum. I’ve had the best results with bundles of moss packed in small trays so it’s self supporting and upright. If the stems are too thin or too short I’ll wrap the bundle of stems in dead sphagnum to add some mass and hold more moisture.

Can I just pluck out the moss and put it in its[…]
