Description

 

 Peat moss, also known as sphagnum or bog moss, is commonly used for soil replacement or amendment

 It is spongy, a quality that improves aeration, soil structure, and drainage to prevent roots from rotting. 

  The vigorous and hardy moss forms a carpet with green, brown, tan, and yellow gold shades. It produces tiny light green narrow leaves during spring, which change color to green with brown and golden hues. This soil conditioner plant has a pale to deep green color with a leaf-like structure containing a living green cell. It is also made up of veinless leaves that contain enlarged and interconnected dead cells. The distinguishing feature of the Peat moss is a unique branch structure emanating from the middle of the plant. 

  Bog moss requires little direct sunlight and is hence easy to grow. What’s more, Peat moss has low maintenance requiring little pruning. The plant grows slowly, living for up to 3 years under ideal conditions. The moss changes appearance depending on humidity levels appearing full and strongly curved when wet.

Peat moss boasts unique water retaining properties

 The nutrient retaining and water holding capacity makes it ideal for planting sandy soil or growing plants that require a lot of moisture to flourish, such as mushrooms. The plant forms dense clumps around swamps and ponds. It is easily found on tree backs, stone, wood, soils, rocks, and other surfaces.  It prefers acidic, moist to wet soil. Besides, it makes soil acidic suitable for growing plants such as camellias, blueberries, and azaleas that grow well in an acidic environment.
