Have the glass and just need a custom moss order? Just convo me and we will make what you want!

Remember closed terrariums should never be watered every week especially with lichens as this will kill them. Remove the top at least once a week or so for air circulation too if you have lichens in there. An open style vase is best for Cladonia and British Soldier Lichens....you can then water them a bit more every few days or place them on a layer of rock that has a bit of water on the bottom so they are not sitting directly on the water but still getting the moisture.

Many people are now selling moss and do not even know a thing about it. My moss is always pesticide free unless you request me to spray a natural pesticide on it if you are going to place on a table etc.

****What to do with my moss if I can not use right away?****

So you bought some moss and no time to use right away or have some left. I just ran a test on my moss for keeping in the refrigerator and yes even the freezer. It did just fine! After 11 days in both places I placed 5 types of my moss in there and in both places after it came out and 3 weeks later it was still alive even after watering several times. So yes you can store your moss in the refrigerator or even freeze if needed for a few weeks. Nice to know this really does work :-)

The moss is packed pretty close to each other in the bags and can stay like that for several weeks so long as it is NOT in direct sun where it will cook in the bag. It does need the light as soon as you can open it from the box shipped in so as to get greened up from lack of light.

You can also lay the moss into say a large clear glass baking dish and cover with plastic wrap. this also acts like a large temporary style terrarium house. This helps from keeping in the bags to long smashed against each other and causing possible brown spots from each other and causing soiled/dirty spots that may turn brown....so I always say either split the moss into several larger ziploc bags or try the glass dish and plastic wrap.


More Information on moss care :BUGS IN MY MOSS

NOTE: All moss is harvested the day before I ship or that same day. I do not use any type of pesticides on these. Because of this...there may be a small Arkansas Traveler or 2 when you get the package (insects,ants,gnats,worm,etc.). They are sealed in plastic bags so you should see them in the bags(ants,worms,gnats etc). If you do and you are using these in terrariums with no live animals...then you can place a cotton ball that has been soaked with bug killer into the bag to kill any insects you may have.
I like to use a natural plant Pyrethrins which is found in a fly spray by Country vet and is also used in our home and in restaurants. It can be found on line or at feed stores/co cops/vet supplies etc. even sometimes at janitor supply stores. Love it!

If this is being used in a vivarium I do not suggest this...any small bug that may be in there would probably be eaten by your critter. You can also just lay they moss outside and then inspect for any type of insect there may be.

When making terrariums with the moss or even lichens...eggs may have been laid on your moss so that these small bugs may hatch later. Again a small amount of pesticide on a cotton ball placed inside of your closed terrarium should take care of that. Keep in there for a few days to keep all hatching's killed. I have had baby grasshoppers as well born in my terrariums.

I am passing this along because this is natural...Spring also tends to have a few more like ants or baby grasshoppers hatching or even small black ants....they will not harm your moss but I just want you to be aware that I do not spray anything here. Thanks so much for your understanding here,Teresa.

I can and have sprayed the moss for those who ask. Look here to get your can of spray if needing a lot of moss sprayed for a wedding etc.

Listed here is a variety of moss plants I have for sale.


My preserved moss is just that...all preserved and will stay that way for years holding the color. This is not just a dry moss that will fade in a few months...it is processed to hold the color form texture and beauty that you see for years. Remember though that ALL things do fade over time when left in direct sunlight or left for long exposure to outside elements like rain etc.

About

My little bit of Heaven Here on earth.

I started selling plants and flowers on line years ago after I moved away from my parents after high school. After 25 years of being away.....

I then moved back to where my parents had been living , married an awesome man and bought land next to my parents in the Ozark mountains.

So we are here on 12 beautiful acres and we have been blessed with the ability to share this beautiful land by growing our own plants and moss to share with people all over the world.

We both love plants and nature and this selling on Etsy happened after I moved back here to this area. It is great to be able to make this my full time business and still be here with my family.

I enjoy all the neat people I meet and love them sharing photos and stories of how they used what they bought from us.

We try to keep all things pesticide free and as natural as we can while growing and harvesting our items. I also try to recycle as much as possible like boxes and packing materials when I can :-).

I love making things and sharing with others a little bit of Mother Nature. I have been selling on line now for almost 18 years and with Etsy now for 6 Years. I enjoy being able to work from my home and be near all my family at the same time!

In Spring I sell a large Variety of Water Garden Plants as well as perennials and other items for your yard. I stop selling my water plants usually about July because of the extreme heat

***Icy weather***-MOSS is FINE in snow and ice. If it arrives frozen just allow it to thaw naturally :-)

I sell my Moss all year long as cold weather does not bother it. Many other items for terrariums and vivarium's are also available.

Custom orders are always welcomed & we love to design new items for people. If you are looking for an item that was sold or you do not see...we may have it so contact us to see.

Visit our other shop for more unusual rustic wooden items & more for Weddings and home decor.

Shipping
We are proud to be a small family owned business so please allow 24-48 hours to process your orders once placed.

We then ship MOST live items Monday thru Wednesday and more when the temps are cooler outside. Non living items will ship all week Monday thru Friday after the 24-48 hour processing time. We ship items many times faster than that but please do allow that time as stated.

What this means is if you place an order for Live Moss on a Wednesday afternoon....it may NOT ship till Monday the next week. Contact us for orders you need right away so to be sure you get in time.

Yes I do combine the shipping. You will always pay for the highest shipping item first then the shipping that says if shipped with another item will take over. My soil is very heavy so you pay the standard shipping first (even if ordered with another item that is less shipping like small rocks etc) and then if you order another bag of soil it is the shipped with another price and so on.

*****NOTE*****
Due to the constant changes of postal and other shipping carrier fees...some listings may still need additional shipping fees added if that listing has for whatever reason not been updated with the correct shipping charges. If there is more needed to ship your item I will contact you to see if you want to pay the extra or for me to just cancel the order. I appreciate your understanding in this matter.

******International orders*******
can be shipped on almost anything that is NOT ALIVE. Contact me if interested in those items with your total order for pricing.

However if for whatever reasons customs does take the item I am not responsible to send any refunds, I try to ship only those items they have on their list but sometimes even larger orders of the moss allowed(PRESERVED) may be stopped for an extra quarantine charge.

http://www.facebook.com/TeresasPlants
Refunds and Exchanges
If you place an order and then for whatever reason cancel it or return to sender or it is returned for any reason as undeliverable by mail..you may incur a 15% restocking fee on it.

ORDERS SHIPPED:You MUST contact me within 24 hours of your purchase if there is anything wrong with it. Live Moss & Plants are shipped alive and guaranteed to be alive upon arrival. Please know that I give you instructions on them and they are also available on my web site included on our business card with your order. I will not be held responsible if you end up killing your live plants due to anything that you may or may not do correctly. My plants are shipped healthy and I want you to be happy with them.

*******Items returned from the post office*********

If your items are returned to me via post office because they either attempted to deliver to your house or you did not pick up from the post office in a timely manner....I can not be responsible for this. I will reship your package to you after I see if the items are still alive and undamaged...but I will have to charge you POSTAGE ONLY to reship.

Postage only means that I may not have to charge as much because of (handling fees) which is the packing contents box etc. which varies on each item. I will contact you with what this fee is before I ship.


***INTERNATIONAL ORDERS*****
I can NOT ship live moss or plants outside the USA. I have shipped my PRESERVED NON LIVING moss to Canada with no troubles and I have shipped also to other countries like Australia spain great Britain etc. 99% of the time there is NO issue...but I have had 1 or 2 that will still be quarantined for whatever reason. Because of this please note that I CAN NOT refund $$ back to you if this happens. I try to be as fair as I can but please understand.


***NOTE****
If you do NOT want the item reshipped (ie. item not broken you just do not want at all) and want just a refund...there may be a restocking fee of 15% to cover cost incurred in the original transaction. I WILL NOT refund the original shipping cost or the cost for you to ship item back in most cases other than broken glass or dead plants then I will look at each situation individually.

CLEARANCE items are just that they state what they are and are NOT eligible for ANY KIND of refund.

Thank you for your understanding in these matters. I want to work with you the best I can in these matters so please keep in touch. All this helps me to keep my cost as well as shipping cost down for all to enjoy.

Additional policies and FAQs
