This moss mix from Swedish company Dusk is well known in the dart frog hobby for containing tropical mosses, fern spores, and seeds from terrarium species including Begonia, Gesneriads and Peperomia. It is a blend of dried and finely milled sphagnum moss that is rehydrated and applied thinly within a terrarium \ vivarium over time growing to a lush mossy environment.
Dusk Moss Mix is dry and dormant and will need to be rehydrated before use.
Empty the moss mix into a container or bowl and add water and stir until it reaches a thin paste like consistency. Allow this mix to sit overnight to fully absorb the water and rehydrate.
Now the moss paste can be applied within a terraium. This can be done by painting it in with a brush, aiming for about a 1mm layer for a consistent approach or can be applied by hand and spread in. Moss will grow best when applied to a surface that can retain moisture such as tree fern panels and should be kept moist at all times.
It may take several weeks before signs of growth appear and several months before seeds and spores germinate and an area is properly filled in.
Best results will be achieved using medium to high light.
