Upon receipt of your plants, unpack and unwrap the roots and mist with water. Plant within 24-48 hours. If you can not plant within this time frame, put your plants in a cool location (ex- basement, garage or cellar) and water the roots daily. Cover them back up with the plastic so they will not dry out until you can plant them. After planted, water every evening after the sun goes down for 5 days.

Carpet mosses are rootless plants that are characterized by the way they grow to form widespread, dense mats in almost every environment worldwide.
As the name suggests, they cover the grounds of habitats with a green layer of carpet-textured greenery. Rarely growing over an inch, its leaves grow parallel to each other and its edges have narrow cells, creating a tapered look to the leaves, and a jagged look to the margins. Variations that can bloom, do so between early summer and the first frost, displaying a variety of colors including white, orange, yellow, red, and pink. Because it can grow in places with little to no sunlight and only needs water to survive, it is a very hardy plant that can be found and grown virtually everywhere. It can also be used as a more environmentally friendly alternative to sod or planted grass.
