Ptychominon aciculare also known as Pipe Cleaner Moss. This moss is a thick or tall tufted moss species best suited to medium to large scale projects. 

In the wild Pipe Cleaner is found out in sclerophyll bushlands growing on top of leaf litter and low fertility soil in high rainfall areas that receive lots of airflow. Ptychominon is a light, tuft / colony forming moss that can grow a stem up 10cm vertically and has many leaves from top to bottom. This moss breaks apart quite easily into individual moss plants or strands. This allows for a wide range of planting options however people will most commonly place the entire colonyon top of their substrate.

Moss and lichens do not respond well to plant fertilisers and unfiltered tap water. We recommend using a ground organic compost amendment in your substrate soil if you need to feed your plants and to use rain water, 10 minute boiled water or demineralised water to hydrate your moss babes.

Richness of colour and colony density may vary throughout the seasons. This moss can withstand extended periods of dryness. 

Best for projects such as

  • Closed Terrariums
  • Open Terrariums
  • Paludariums & Vivariums
  • Tropical Animal Enclosures
  • Dried ornaments and decor (stays green outside of a terrarium for a long time)
