Maybe this?

SuperMoss (22330) Orchid Sphagnum Moss Dried, Natural, 2.4lbs Small Bale
$24.99
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BR1B1H2

The bag says "504 cu in / 8L" and "Expands to 10 times its volume". I'm working my way through a bag of it right now. It isn't as nice as Spagmoss, but it's decent. If you're picky (like me), you'll have to fish out some bits of twigs and roots from the moss.

These photos are from today, October 3rd 2021.

Unfortunately I have lost both “Blood Moon” cultivars grown in sphagnum, my fault. I missed a watering for both Sphag and peat and those two clones passed.

Plants should be about ready to go into dormancy now. How'd things turn out?

I use Chilean Sphagnum moss and I usually seem to receive plants ordered online in perlite peat moss mix once I repot em they clearly get better overall.
