Pincushion Moss is a true terrarium staple. 

Immediately recognizable by its lush green mounds – hence the many cushion-based names – Leucobryum glaucum is a welcome addition to any project. 

Honestly, with such fluffy verdant texture, there’s no easier way to bring a terrarium to life. Placing just a few of these clumps can instantly transform a landscape from boring to vibrant. 

Easy to care for, stunning, and versatile.

It’s actually a temperate moss found in woodland and wetlands areas around the world. But don’t let that fool you; it performs better in tropical terrariums than most tropical mosses.

That’s because of its incredible adaptability and versatility.

Being an acrocarpous moss, it doesn’t branch out and instead grows in very compact ‘clumps.’ Making it perfect for terrariums of all shapes and sizes.

For starters:

  • It’s never going to outgrow a space – As they mature, they don’t get much bigger; their leaves just seem to flesh out a little.
  • You can tear it apart to create perfectly sized clumps – Whether you need a large mound or just a button-sized amount to fill a space, you can create exactly what you need.
  • It’s super easy to place and sculpt – The chunks of moss are much more manageable to intentionally set than their sheet moss counterparts. Allowing you to make a seamless mossy landscape.

 Shipped in five inch round plastic bowl for optimal humidity conditions while in transit. Will fill bowl as full as possible without damage to the moss.
