WillGro - Chilean Sphagnum Moss
Sphagnum moss is a plant that grows on the surface of the soil in a bog or swamp. It thrives in New Zealand, Chile, Greenland, Canada and other regions. It is carefully and sustainably harvested to ensure regeneration, a cycle which typically takes 5-6 years. It is also known as peat moss, although that term can also refer to a different product.
WillGro moss is a high quality, lightweight, naturally sterile sphagnum moss from Chile. An excellent blend for most orchids, including Phalaenopsis, Dendrobiums and Oncidiums and more. WillGro Moss helps accelerate growth and reduce shock when repotting seedlings such as Cattleyas, Phalaenopsis, Oncidiums and Dendrobiums. Holds 20 times its weight in water. Sphagnum moss is an excellent soil amendment!
Before using, place moss in a container of water to allow it to rehydrate completely. Use hands to squeeze excess water out. When potting, do not pack moss into pot too tightly. The tighter the moss is packed, the less water it holds. Never allow moss to dry out completely.
WillGro Potting Instructions
Place broken clay pots, or rocks in the bottom of the pot to improve drainage. Take a handful of pre-moistened WilGro Moss, wrap it around the roots and position the plant in the pot and pack firmly but not too tightly. Add additional moss to bring the moss level up to the base of the plant. Maintain a regular fertilizer program.
Orchids in Baskets:
Follow the potting instructions for orchids. Rocks to aid drainage are not necessary. Take note: Baskets may dry out faster than pots.
Scrape cuttings, dip in a rooting hormone and place in damp WillGro Moss. Rooting will soon occur. Remember, with rooting hormones, less is usually more, so don't "glop" it on.
Mulching House Plants:
Place a layer of damp WillGro Moss on the top of the potting mix to reduce drying. WillGro Moss can also be mixed with the potting medium to retain moisture.
Propagation is used to induce plant stems to produce roots. Select clean young shoots for best results.
