For those who want the best for their plants, this is it! PREMIUM QUALITY Long Fiber Sphagnum from New Zealand, the highest quality Sphagnum moss available; This is the primary soil ingredient that we use for potting all of our Nepenthes. It is much more porous than our standard CP mix, and helps to aerate the roots of the plants, which mimics their natural environment. These briquettes are super-compressed, and these two briquets are enough to make 16 LITERS (FOUR GALLONS) of rehydrated Sphagnum moss. WOW! This just allows you to buy just what you need! Classic length, with at least 75% of the strands being four inches in length.
Shipping is included in the price of these, so they ship separately from any other items you may purchase. We recommend that you purchase one of our other Sphagnum products, including single briquettes, if you plan to include them with an order for additional items.
NOTE: We ONLY use premium Long Fiber Sphagnum from New Zealand in our mixes, as this is the only location that 'farms' this precious resource in a more environmentally responsible manner. Other countries mine the Sphagnum and the peat underneath, meaning their product is often full of sticks, leaves, other plants, etc. And this 'mining' process leaves a gaping scar on the landscape that in most cases NEVER HEALS. In contrast, New Zealand takes only the top layer of Sphagnum, and then allows this location to regrow for years before Sphagnum is harvested from it again. We support this conservation practice, and feel the additional cost to get the highest quality product to our customers is worth it!
