I bought a pack of pure sphagnum moss, but for some reason it has a smell. It isn't a rotting one, it is almost fragrant. It is a mix of the normal tan colored sphagnum and red sphagnum. Is the smell coming from the red sphagnum?

I just took a sniff of my (green) live and dead sphagnum to answer this question.
Yes, the live sphagnum definitely has a different smell.
I do have red sphagnum, but it smells like a forest with all the debris in it.
