spagnum moss or peat moss?
    #492165 - 12/15/01 04:18 PM (22 years, 5 months ago)

Just about to case and need to know which to use spagnum moss or peat moss? Spagnum moss is much different than peat moss, kinda like the shit that hangs off trees in the bayou downsouth. Ive heard from some who say to use the spagnum and others who say to use the peat moss instead. Who's right?

Thanks Hollywood

Hmm, I haven't cased yet, but the bags of peat moss I have is from 'Whitney Fams'....It says 'sphagnum' in small letters and 'Peat Moss' underneath it in big letters. Will this be alright?

Thanks in advance,
UBono2

Is Spagnum the scientific name for peat moss?

Sphagnum is the genus of the moss. For example, we are Homo sapiens, Homo being the genus. There are several species of sphagnum; some turn red under bright, indirect light.
Sphagnum peat moss is pure sphagnum moss (well, it sometimes has sticks and leaves in it if your supplier is shitty), but it's a decomposed form of peat moss. It is usually found in lakes that have dried up...You'd find peat moss under the spaghnum moss. Far under the peat moss, you'd find oil sometimes(fossilized peat moss!). Sphagnum moss isn't fine and dirt like...it looks like dried moss.
You want to use Sphagnum peat moss buffered with about 10% by dry weight CaCO3 or lime. This substance acts as a buffer, which means the substrate reaches a desired pH, and whenever excess acid or base is formed from the aqueous solution, the CaCO3 reacts with it to keep the pH from changing.
