Our live moss slurry is a concentrated blend of different moss & plant species that can be used to initiate growth on different terrarium decor. Our mix will acclimate quickly in most temperate, subtropical, and tropical vivaria when relative humidity averages 75% or higher. It can be successfully planted in crevices in wood/rocks/backgrounds, on tree fern panels, or simply spread lightly over leaf litter or substrate for a slightly grown-in forest floor look as it acclimates. Since our Moss Slurry is prepared using live moss & plants, acclimation will begin to visually occur within just 3-4 weeks in most cases. Once acclimated, the growth will spread to nearby backgrounds, wood decor, and rocks. Depending on the amount of light available to the mix, different species will out-grow others to ensure at least some nice looking growth even in fairly dim areas of an enclosure. (Click for example of low-light growth) For fastest & most aggressive growth, please use our inexpensive LED Vivarium Lighting Kits. Our mix is made fresh every week, and should be used within a day or two of receipt for best results. Click for detailed instructions.
