This is two pieces of moss, collected by me from the Siuslaw forest in Oregon. One piece is a light green species of moss which prefers rocky substrate, this is the larger piece pictured. It has been collected with some substrate intact, and can be placed on thin acidic soil or gravel, as-is. The smaller piece is soil moss, which also includes some tiny clover, and groundcover. This moss specimen will prefer soil underneath it- acidic soil. It has been collected with some substrate attached, as shown in the photos, and has some pine needles and other acidic pine humus attached to its roots. These are live, established mosses, collected gently and ready for use in a terrarium.

This specimen will ship damp, in a sealed plastic bag, and will keep as-is for several weeks if necessary without opening the bag or watering. (It will need indirect sunlight if stored.)

If used in a terrarium. this lichen will prefer indirect sun. It will do well when watered with distilled water, and does not need soil. Since it is firmly attached to its bark, it comes already-planted on a perfect substrate, and could be used as-is, without further preparation.

I cannot ship this item to Hawaii, or California, or internationally.
Specimens will ship in sealed plastic bags, wrapped in protective materials to prevent damage in transit. Specimens will already be watered and ready for use, or for storing in indirect sun for up to three weeks after arrival. Do not open the bag until you are ready to use these specimens or replant them.

This is thick shade moss and many high-branch lichen species which grow here, near the Siuslaw forest in the Cascade range of western Oregon. I collected this and several other established moss specimens after tha windstorm in January 2012, when many of the trees in my property were damaged; the higher branches broke, bringing down many excellent and undisturbed samples of moss and lichen.

I realize that lots of people live in cities, in deserts, or away from these rich, thick woods and coast; my love for this place and its life inspired me to build these terrrariums, and supply these specimens. I allow branches which fall to lie where they land and rot into the soil, and I collect mosses in limited amounts there, as well as eating the chanterelles which grow wild here.all prints and photography of these items and more are listed in my other shop at http://etsy.com/shop/printeranji , find me there if you want prints!
