Reindeer Moss - Lichen Tray
Reindeer Moss is actually a lichen, Cladonia rangiferina, not a bryophyte (moss). It makes a dramatic accent with its natural gray-greenish color in contrast with the brilliant greens of mosses or colorful flowers. Specimens range in size from 5-10”. Long-term sustainability is questionable; consider Reindeer Moss as an annual requiring periodic replacement.
All live mosses, lichens and native plants have either been rescued from high-impact locations or cultivated in our Mossery. We promote the use of these plants for LIVE moss projects and sustainable landscapes. Some mosses will come with soil attached while others, particularly prostrate-growing types and mounds, may have very little soil attached to their tiny rhizoids.
Mosses are shipped via Priority Mail through the US Postal Service. Most deliveries occur within 2-3 days. Mountain Moss will assume the costs of insuring your order. Please notify us if you encounter any issues or your delivery is lost.
Each moss tray order is approximately 10 x 20” in size providing at least 1.33 sq. ft. of product. Substrate fabric is included providing easy installation for gardeners and landscapers, if desired. Hard plastic tray may not be included in the shipment, unless specifically requested by the customer.
Make sure to check moisture levels when your moss tray arrives. Fluff mosses with your hands. Rehydrate as needed and keep moist, but not soggy, until planted. If possible, stage your mosses outdoors until planting, rather than inside locations. Air conditioning or heat will dry out mosses quickly, and therefore require more attention to keep them fresh.
Since florists and crafters treat most mosses as dead elements, we discourage the purchase of our LIVE mosses for these types of floral or craft projects. We request that buyers keep our mosses alive and thriving in sustainable landscapes or containers that feature the beauty of live, green moss colonies.
Quantities limited; Place holiday orders now to ensure timely delivery. Deadline for holiday shipping is December 15th. Shipping costs cited for US customers only. International customers need to contact Mossin' Annie directly to make separate arrangements due to costs for foreign shipping and USDA/foreign inspection requirements for any orders shipped out of the country.
All mosses and other native plants have been either cultivated in our Mossery or rescued from high impact sites following responsible land stewardship practices. Mountain Moss Enterprises is certified by the State of North Carolina to distribute live moss plants through its nursery operations (NC License/Certification #6440). In addition, Mountain Moss Enterprises possesses a Collected Plant License for legitimate harvesting of native mosses (NC License/Certification #5291). Please encourage respect our national/state/local forest resources and protect them for future generations.
