NEHERP Terrarium Moss
By far one of our best sellers. Our live moss is 100% all natural, pesticide & dye free. It'll grow upward and outward in well lit vivariums with high humidity. Our moss is is sold pre-processed
in resealable bags, and is safe for immediate use in vivariums. Can be mounted epiphytically or terrestrially, depending on the goals for your application. This species is perfectly suited to vivarium conditions. Since 2009, we're the only terrarium plant supplier that pre-processes moss for you! Our moss thrives on either NEHERP or ABG substrate
, and can tolerate a wide variety of lighting conditions ranging from partial shade to full sun. Please note that the moss pictured above had about 2-3 months to acclimate, and will require time to grow & become that lush. Please check out our moss caresheet
for advice on how to grow it successfully.

After months of development, our 1'st NEHERP Moss Mix is now available! If you are new to the concept of a Moss Mix/Slurry, it's essentially a concentrated blend of different moss & plant species that can be used to initiate moss 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 substrate, on tree fern panels, or simply spread over leaf litter or substrate for a grown-in forest floor look as it acclimates. Since our mix is prepared using live moss & plants
, acclimation will begin to visually occur within 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, check out our suggested LED lighting solutions
for live vivariums. 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.

Exo Terra Forest Moss is real compressed moss grown in tropical Asia. This ecological substrate is ideal for increasing humidity in the terrarium and is totally safe for frogs, salamanders and burrowing or digging animals. Forest Moss is extremely absorbent and is recommended in humidifying shelters, and as an ideal egg-laying or incubation medium. This completely natural forest moss has no dyes or chemicals, and each brick expands to 7L when soaked in water.
This moss is a very economical option, however it is a dry product, and will take much longer & be more difficult to acclimate than our live moss options above. An excellent choice for humidifying shelters & even as an egg-laying media.
