Spikey moss is a less common but easy-to-care-for moss, which is not only perfect for beginners, but also it is beautiful enough to be used by experienced aquarium keepers for backgrounds in aquascapes. As its name suggests, Spikey moss grows very long “spikey” branches. The growth is similar to Peacock or Mini Christmas moss except each branch can be over a foot long.
Spikey moss does not require any special care other than basic, clean water and low-to-moderate lighting. Our Spikey moss is grown submerged in low-tech shrimp tanks. Only super-healthy, bright green cuttings will be harvested and shipped directly to customers.
Typical portions will be several long pieces (roughly a golf ball), which will be more than enough to start propagating your own beautiful piece. We do not sell large clumps or pre-made containers of moss because these typically do not adapt as well to new tank parameters.
How to grow: We recommend you cut your new moss up into small ½” to ¾” pieces and tie or glue it to whatever surface you would like to attach it to. Each new end will continue to grow and eventually produce a lush, full, beautiful plant. Alternatively, the purchased pieces can be left as-is and each cut end will branch out.
Disclaimer: All plants or moss may contain baby shrimp or snails.
