Fissidens Fontanus Moss

Rating: Not Rated Yet

Price: $5.00

Status: Out of Stock


This slow growing delicate and rarer moss extends feather-like fronds that provides great volume over time, which will provide great shelter for shrimplets. These should be tied or glued to hardscape immediately and are overall sensitive compared to other mosses. Each $5 portion will roughly cover the surface of a large coin when the “feathers” are lined up.
