Mosser Lee's Long-Fibered Sphagnum Moss is your organic answer to many gardening and indoor floral projects. Long-Fibered Sphagnum Moss is not peat moss, but rather a perennial plant that grows wild in the Central Wisconsin sphagnum bogs. Mosser Lee's sphagnum is a renewable resource growing back in the same bogs every 5-7 years, so using Mosser Lee's long-fibered sphagnum does not destroy our precious wet lands. Early Native Americans used the natural long-fibered sphagnum plant in every day life, including wound dressing, bedding and baby diapers. Because of the unique properties of lonf-fibered sphagnum moss to both absorb and hold 20 times its weight in water and repel bacteria, long-fibered sphagnum moss has been heralded by horticulturists as the best solution to several basic gardening problems.
