This medium speed growing moss grows vertically in tendrils, eventually forming a troll doll hair/flame-like bush. These are fairly hardy and don’t require much care. When doing well, Flame Moss provides a very lush vibrant green that provides plenty of hiding spaces for your shrimp. Each $5 portion will lightly form a golf ball in size.
