Where does one get long fiber sphagnum/live sphagnum ?

by sekler » Sun Nov 14, 2010 3:48 pm

Hello all !

here in Canada it seems like it's difficult to find long fiber or even live sphagnum moss around.
Where do you get it ? Do people grow it from seed ?
It seems like I can order long fiber one online, but live one is a mystery to me !

So far, I only managed to find sphagnum peat moss, I'd like to do some experiments and especially with my darlingtonias which I'm growing from seed !

Thanks :)

Hey dude !
thanks for the link, I already knew about it but it cannot be shipped internationally from the store, only seeds can though.

Yes, it's true that it's easier to answer questions for people when you know their location, but sekler kind of made it clear in his initial post:

You need to put in your city for it to show on the forums.
