There's an eBay seller called ads.ink who has all sorts of interesting-colored live sphagnum moss. Now that the weather has cooled off, his
stock
is back. His mosses are pretty but not cheap: most of the quart-sized bags cost $25, and the extra-red ones are $35.

The word "stock" is underlined with a link.

The dotted underline is too easy to miss. I edited my post and changed the link text to dark blue. I think I'll start doing that for all embedded links from now one.

I decided to spring for some live sphagnum moss from ads.ink. This seller names the moss according to its color. Here's what I got:

25 bucks (each) got a pleated, quart, ZipLoc bag full of moss. The strands are 3-4 inches (7.5-10 cm) long. If I had cut each strand into thirds or quarters, then a bag would've been almost enough to cover a 1020 tray (if only I had the space...). The seller also has some very nice red moss and red-tipped green, but they run 35 bucks a bag, and that was just too rich for my wallet.

I'm propagating what I bought in deep food-storage containers, fingers crossed that it adapts to the climate in North Carolina.
