Best described as Christmas moss' big brother, but from Asia, 2-10 cm tall, rougher and bigger with deep green, branched shoots. Spiky moss does best on vertical surfaces where the branched shoots settle in. It grows fast and requires a lot of light to do well.

This is the most beautiful moss I have seen, the colour is incredibly vibrant, the portion was larger than I was expecting so is great value for money!

Ask a question about this product
Is this the same as Taxiphyllum Spiky Moss Cup?

Yep! Spiky moss is spiky moss. The Tropica portions are big though.

I am planning to create a moss background wall in a fluval edge 23lt, would o be best buying it like this or in the grow pots, also how many would I need to buy the end attach to mesh?


like this is fine - each portion is good for an area approximately 15x15cm2

I find myself puzzled, in the description about this plant it says (it grows fast and requires a lot of light to do well) but on your sun/light guide is shows low light, could you please clarify which one it is?


Text has been revised - no moss grows fast but it's ok in low to higher light
