Golden Spikemoss

Welcome to the Spikemoss page. You're a moss person now. Moss is adorable. Bright, vivacious green, gentle mounds of evergreen, perennial, shade-loving, low-growing glory. Great for indoor pots and terrariums, and for rock gardens, foot paths, and to refer to as "your pet moss". (Why not?)

Más moss, please! Golden Spikemoss looks like minuscule, chartreuse ferns growing all in a little happy mound. Breathe in the humid, earthy lusciousness. Soothe your soul.

Includes three young plants, grown in 2.5” diameter pots

Growing Info
How to Plant Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Fill a little bit of the loose dirt back into the hole and tuck your plant in so the base of the stem is even with the top of the hole. Now fill in the rest of the soil around the roots, give the soft ground around the base of your new plant friend a few solid pats to compress the soil onto the roots, and a long, gentle drink of water
Where to Plant Find a place that gets mostly shade, in well draining soil. We recommend planting in 12" pots or shady window boxes
When to Plant Plant outside in the late spring, once the soil has warmed up. Avoid the heat of the day when planting — plant in the early morning, late afternoon, or by the light of the moon
When to Expect Blooms We're here for the foliage
Care Instructions Water regularly. Mist weekly if kept indoors
Extra Credit Do be sure to keep the soil evenly moist, but not saturated. In cold winter regions, bring your fern indoors before the first frost. In mild winter regions, water less frequently if kept outdoors
