That's sphagnum moss. You don't really need it to do pullings. I've done plenty of them in regular peat moss. But if you do want to get some, you can find it at Lowes, Home Depot or any nursery. It should be near the orchid potting mix.

I think he might actually be referring to the agar medium in the culture jars. :) Not sure though--
