Superior to Chilean sphagnum, New Zealand sphagnum is grown and
sustainably harvested in isolated swamps on the west coast of New
Zealand. Harvested only every 5 years and flown out by helicopter to
further protect the environment, this harvest is overseen by a NZ
Government agency to ensure a sustainable renewable resource.
In pots, this incredible media will last two years or longer
(Chilean is good for 1 year) depending on your watering. It can be used
alone or mixed with other media to increase moisture retention. It can
hold 20 times its weight in water, and has known antiseptic properties
to protect your plants.
Soak the moss for 5 minutes, then squeeze out the excess water.
Gently tease apart the fibres before filling the pot. DO NOT OVER PACK,
there should still be air spaces in the media or the roots will
suffocate, killing the plant.
