Sheet Moss



 Sheet moss naturally grows in North American forests on tree trunks, rocks, logs, walls and a variety of other surfaces. In fact, it has been found on all continents except Antarctica. Moss is a type of plant known as a bryophyte. It has no real roots, seeds, fruits, or flowers. It is so widespread that it also has some familiar names such as carpet moss, rock moss, and feather moss. These names describe specific qualities of the moss. It is typically harvested in sheets because of its lateral, thick, and low growth habit. Sheet Moss prefers shady areas, but it will tolerate partial sun as long as it is not direct sunlight in the afternoon. The plant color ranges from a bright to a medium green to various shades of yellow. It tolerates light foot traffic, so it is useful for filling in spaces between pavers on walkways and in patios. This moss prefers to grow in slightly acidic loamy or sandy soil. It is also quite tolerant of pollution. In some regions such as the Pacific Northwest, mosses are encouraged to grow as a lawn cover which will do away with weekly mowings. To promote energy conservation mosses are used on green roofs since they have a reduced weight load compared to higher plants. The mosses are also utilized as hanging basket linings, like a terrarium soil covers, and even as packing material. Years ago the moss was used as fillings for mattresses and pillows, so it is associated with sleep. The genus name Hypnum comes from the Greek word Hypnos, the name of the Greek God Hypnos or sleep.

Good plant

I received the air plant in just a few days after ordering. It came healthy with its own personal note regarding care, which had me smiling while reading. This plant adds a special touch to any room.
