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. It is PREMIUM GRADE Long Fiber Sphagnum from New Zealand, the highest quality Sphagnum moss available; this just keeps you from having to buy more than you need! These briquettes are super-compressed, and one of these is enough to make 8 LITERS of rehydrated Sphagnum moss. WOW!
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 Sphaghum 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 many 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!
