Description

Sphagnum moss grows on the surface of soil or water.

 They generally grow in dense clumps and have shallow roots. Sphagnum moss is a small plant only growing 1 to 3 inches in height. Its leaves are slightly toothed and usually light green. There are also varieties in yellow, pink, red, or brown. They grow in hardiness zones 3-9. They grow best in the shade with a humid environment. They are good at retaining water and other nutrients and have a natural PH balance. Sphagnum moss is often used to line baskets used to grow orchids or other plants.

Sphagnum moss can be found in wet and boggy places. It will grow best in acidic soil.

This particular type of moss needs a low pH so it can’t grow in soil or near water that has any amount of lime in it. It often grows in clusters but is relatively small though these clusters are small they are incredibly dense. This moss so close together called bog mats that it could float on top of the water. It has a very shallow root system making it versatile to grow almost anywhere.

Sphagnum moss it can support the weight of a giant moose.

Sphagnum Moss has small leaves. The leaves are small and often have tiny teeth. The leaves can vary in color from red, burgundy, yellow or brown depending on the area that it is growing in. But most often you will see the leaves as light green. Because of the capillary tubes, it holds water like a sponge. Therefore you can squeeze it out, and it can be reused. If you are ever in a survival situation finding this moss dry can be used as an excellent fuel or fire starter. Though it doesn’t burn as long as other things, you could use as fuel. Since this particular type of moss grows in swamps, and wet areas, it is hard to find dry moss to use as a fire starter.
