A moss speciality from Brasil, 1-3 cm tall, called "Christmas tree moss'', because of its side branch structure which distinguishes it from ordinary Vesicularia dubyana and looks like fir tree branches. It is more demanding than ordinary Java moss and grows more slowly. It attaches readily to roots and stones, and as it spreads in the water it needs pruning to keep its shape attractive. See also Taxiphyllum barbieri.

Note: Christmas moss consists of small moss branches (ranging from 5-15mm long) so is trickier to tie onto wood or rock. Use lots of Aqua Fine Line (sold separately) to anchor it down.

Ask a question about this product
what sort of lighting does this plant require. And what other plants work well under the same lighting, we have a max spect razor light, so we have a lot of control over what light we can provide.


Low light really, It looks really nice with Anubias on rock or Bonsai trees :-)

Can you make a carpet with this type of moss? If not what would you reccomend



why does this ,and other,mosses gather so much vmoss.small paticulates in the water,and are then almost impossible to keep clean ?


Nature of the beast. Add more filter floss to your filter to remove particulates
