I purchased a gallon bag of Meadowview Biological Research Station's red and purple select sphagnum moss ($40 + shipping) on September 17th and received it today, September 24th, in a medium size priority box. The box and moss came in good condition and packed well. The gallon zip lock was pretty much stuffed full. Some of the moss appears purple/red and some appears green. I cleaned it out as I went through the bag. There was some dead leaves and live hitchhikers in the bag. Hitchhikers included a couple maple seedlings, carex, grasses, and about 7 sarracenia seedlings. I will pot the sarracenia up and grow them indoors this winter and then move them into the outdoor bog next spring. Over all I think this is a good deal for some decent moss. I will try to update next year after the moss and sarracenia havesettled in.

I've found that their red moss is difficult to get good color on a regular basis. Definitely more finicky than green.

Here's a photo with the Meadowview sarracenia that came as seedlings in my sphagnum a while back. It's too early to tell what they are, but the one in the front left looks like is anthocyanin free.
