hello good people...does anyone have experience with transplanting, harvesting spaghnum moss...I live at 1000m above sea level in the subtropics ...east coast of Australia...surrounded by rainforest so it is everywhere... I want to harvest it and dry it for kokodama plants, orchids etc ....and transplant it to other places to replace a local ground cover weed called Wandering Jew... as described in this site...https://www.daf.qld.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/56916/wandering-jew.pdf

Can't find any info about spaghnum moss on the Net with respect to these activities... thank you  !

For transplanting it look up moss lawns, I believe a blender is involved but i have never looked at the process very closely.
Your "weed" there is a treasured houseplant here! though the name has been changed to protect certain sensibilities. I remember my mother saying it had the name because it's impossible to kill.

thank you... We also have a "native" Wandering Jew... I'll keep that where it occurs... One of these 2 species is apparently edible... will find out before I totally cull anything...but the spaghnum moss is of far greater value to me as I do grow food anyway... Have a great day    dee
 
I guess everyone has an angle. Fine, what do you want? Just know that you cannot have this tiny ad:
