Dicranum scoparium is a native to North America. More commonly known, Mood Moss does not like constant moisture. Its curved leaves will vary in color from green-yellowish to dark green. That is dependent upon the health of the moss. While happy to grow atop of any surface, Mood Moss prefers a forest floor-type environment to thrive in.
Mood Moss is an acrocarpous moss that appears slightly on the fluffy side. It is common to be found in tightly clumped groups. Its leaves tend to wave in a curved manner. The shallow root system allows Mood Moss to be found on stones in the natural habitat.
Mood Moss is safe for animals and plays a vital part in its environment. This densely clumped moss can make a safe space for smaller inhabitants, even providing food for some insects and larvae. Its texture and appearance are often sought after for a variety of terrariums. It is recommended to supply plenty of drainages when kept in a controlled environment. This emotionally visual species is perfect for hobbyists.
Bright, indirect light works best for Dicranum Scoparium. Humidity is best kept at around 65%. A mild temperature of high 60's to low 70's will allow the moss to thrive, even under artificial lighting. Minimal trimming is needed, as this is a slower-growing member of the Dicranaceae family. The curved leaves typically grow to one side.
Mood Moss shows its true beauty when conditions are favorable for propagation. The thick leaves will outwardly project the true happiness of the plant. Long stalks with small capsules will be expelled into the air to reproduce. Its lush clumps will seem fragile and hurting when in need or vulnerable—providing an outward display of internal health. The display of temperament is fantastic.
