Natural sphagnum moss is a phenomenal growing medium for bonsai artists, orchid growers, kokedama artists and even keepers of critters! It possesses excellent water retentive properties while maintaining an oxygen enriched environment in which roots flourish and will not rot. Highly effective when used in layering and as a top dressing after repotting.



Soak the sphagnum moss for about 24 hours. Squeeze out the excess water and then fluff the moss up in your hands by airing it. Plant your orchid, succulent or other by first placing some moss into the container, inserting your plant and then filling the gaps with moss. Don’t compact the moss.


As a top dressing for bonsai artists after repotting, to promote surface root formation, before wetting the moss chop it up or cut it up into finer pieces. Throw into a bucket of water and then scoop up some moss in your open hand and “slap” onto the surface around your bonsai tree. The layer does not need to be too thick, perhaps 5mm.


If you wish to layer a piece of a branch or a portion of a trunk then use sphagnum moss instead of other rooting mediums. Wet the moss with plain water, or with water into which you have added some liquid rooting hormone (such as Dip n Root). Squeeze out the excess and continue with the layering process as normal.
