Like the title says, I'm in India and the biggest problem here is the low (almost nil) availability of substrate for CP. I have looked high and low and didn't find a source for Sphagnum moss or peat moss.

There are Amazon listings but... Amazon being what it is they're probably not trustworthy. I do have some dried moss, but it's forest moss (I've seen orchids thrive in it).

Can anyone help by mentioning sources for Sphagnum, peat or can help in importing some?

Thanks in advance, folks!

This is arguably the best sphagnum moss available: http://besgrow.com/spagmoss . If it's factory sealed on Amazon or Ebay, you should be fine. You might also be able to buy it from a dealer in Asia (there's a list on the website). Good luck.

I did find a source for Sphagnum but seems like I have to hold off on it due to the clampdowns on parcels and stuff due to Corona.
