Fern Moss

It’s a pleurocarpous moss, which will form a dense layer when added to your garden. As a choice for filling in bare patches of your water or rain garden, Fern moss is the one for you. 


Fern moss care and maintenance


Fern Moss prefers to grow in moist, shaded environments but can tolerate some partial sun. However, do not plant Fern Moss in direct sunlight to avoid leaf burn. Fern Moss needs a lot of moisture in its environment.

So planting it in damp wetland conditions that retain plenty of water in the soil drains properly is the key to successfully growing Fern Moss.

Fern Moss tends to grow slowly and will form a thick carpet of lush green moss. Fern Moss will also do well in moist, shaded, or humus-rich soil. As a landscaping treasure, it will grow over logs, rocks, and stumps, bringing a fairy-woodland appeal to your backyard garden sanctuary.




Fern Moss is a lovely way to add a ground cover, texture, and vibrancy garden. Mosses are in the bryophytes family of plants, meaning they are non-vascular plants. Fern Moss lacks the parts of a plant, such as leaves, branches, or roots. Since moss has no roots, so it must absorb its water from the ground. Fern Moss spreads by spores or division since it does not have seeds like other plants.

Fern Moss tends to grow in colonies. Planting several Fern Moss plants together will create a lush, smooth green carpet, enhancing your garden landscape. Fern Moss will enhance any landscape as a practical, easy-to-maintain ground cover or decorative moss. Do make Fern-Moss a top choice for your water or rain garden today!
