Q: About "green moss," "sheet moss," and "horticultural moss".

Real Sphagnum

A: Some nurseries will try to sell you other kinds of horticultural "moss" they say will do as well as Sphagnum. The products they may try to sell you are called various things like "green moss", "sheet moss", or "horticultural moss." Either these nurseries do not know what they are talking about, or they are soulless monsters who are trying to cheat you.

All these products are garbage, and are certainly not Sphagnum.
