Going to look fantastic when it has grow. One concern is the metal mesh it is on, I cut my thumb on it just fixing it onto a rock, I just worry it may cut a fish. This hasn't happened so far but I would still recommend it as it looks really good.

Hello, I write this review about the supplier. The product arrive promptly, well pack and looking fine. As this is an extremely slow growing plant its impossible to review the plant, but the supplier is recommended and I will return. :-)

Ask a question about this product
How big is the mesh the moss is attached onto; or if sold loose, what sort of area will it cover?

About 10x5 cm

Is the moss delivered on a mesh or in a cup?



10cmx5cm? Mine was about 3x3? Also how best to grow this? Remove from the mesh or? Thanks in advance


Back in the day they were bigger but to keep costs down they've made them smaller - best in mind you're referring to a comment from 2013. Tropica now state 5x5cm. Leave on mesh and place on substrate.
