Zoo Med's New Zealand Sphagnum Moss is highly preferred for terrarium use due to its exceptional softness and impressive moisture retention capabilities. This lush, carpet-like moss can hold up to 20 times its dry weight in moisture, making it perfect for live plants and incredibly durable even after other substrates have decomposed. It can also be washed and reused multiple times. Sustainably harvested, this moss is guaranteed to be available for future generations. With its ability to hold more water and stay moist longer than any other type of moss, it is an excellent top substrate choice for Zoo Med's Naturalistic Terrariums. Moreover, it contains natural compounds that prevent decomposition in humid environments, ensuring its longevity. Suitable for use with various species of frogs, toads, and salamanders.
