With roots stretching all the way back to the last Ice Age, long-fibered sphagnum moss is a winter-hearty perennial plant possessing unique water retention and anti-bacterial attributes. The plentiful uses of long-fibered sphagnum were first recognized by the early native Americans who used the plant in everyday life for dressing wounds, bedding and diapering babies.
Long-fibered sphagnum moss is not peat moss, but rather a perennial plant that grows wild in the Central Wisconsin sphagnum bogs. Mosser Lee's sphagnum is a renewable resource growing back in the same bogs every 5-7 years, so using Mosser Lee's long-fibered sphagnum does not destroy our precious wet lands.
Because of its abilities to both absorb and hold 20 times its weight in water and repel bacteria, long-fibered sphagnum moss has been heralded by horticulturists as the best solution to several basic gardening problems.
Mosser Lee's Long-Fibered Sphagnum Moss is your organic answer to many gardening and indoor floral projects.
