Willow 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 or focal points in aquascapes. As its name suggests, Willow moss grows in a more unstructured shape, but stays way more contained than java moss. It has larger, pointed leaves and a thicker appearance than some others.
Willow moss does not require any special care other than basic, clean water and low-to-moderate lighting. Our Willow 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 pieces (roughly 1” 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.
