Mood Moss - Dicranum scoparium
Mood Moss is delicate, low laying variety that does well in zones 4 to 10. The name comes from its altering appearance, depending on the moisture level. It matures in about six months, spreads quickly, with growth between 3 and 4 inches. This plant loves the shade and thrives in areas with no foot traffic. Once established, mood moss is drought tolerant too. Unique with a thick, fluffy appearance, it brings added interest to forest edges and gardens. It also does well in rock gardens, potted plants, dish gardens, or as a ground cover. Another use is as an accent in floral arrangements.
The dense, vibrant nature of mood moss along with its vividly bright green color makes it a standout choice in some arrangements.
Maintenance for this lush plant is low as it requires minimal watering. Ideally, the moss should be kept moist when it is first established in a new location to allow for optimal growth. It can be sprayed lightly with water as needed to prevent it from becoming too dry over the course of a six month period. Once it takes to hold the mood moss is remarkably resistant to drought and other arid temperaments. It is highly advised that the plant not is left in direct sunlight. It prefers an environment that provides natural light that is bright yet indirect. It will also flourish in shady areas at an optimal temperature between 50 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Its trademark name "mood" is used to describe the changes in appearance the moss undergoes when exposed to different levels of humidity. It is noticeably irregular and wispy-looking when dry and more full and strongly curved when wet.
The Mood Moss also takes hold very well to a variety of surfaces including soil, stone, and wood.
This makes it the perfect plant for outdoor terrariums, outdoor landscapes, indoor projects, rock gardens and much more. The mood moss is also known for being supportive and works well as a base for displaying exotic plants or housing reptiles in an enclosed terrarium. No matter the place or time of year, mood moss is a beautiful addition to any home or living space and looks great in both small and large quantities.
