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.

Sheet moss, also known as Hypnum moss, is an outdoor carpet-like plant with a soft texture.
It is part of the Hypnaceae family. Homeowners grow moss in pathways and lawns to give the garden setting a charming ground cover. It is recommended that you plant the moss plant near other plants to ensure they get enough shade cover.
The moss plant is generally green, with phases of bright green to yellow-green. The deep green shade appears to be a little bit fuzzy. The plant branches are bristly and sometimes curly. One unique feature about the Hypnum moss is the lack of cost or midrib.
Sheet moss requires little or no maintenance. Since it grows in moist and cold areas watering should be the least of your worries. This means that cultivating the moss is relatively cheap.
The plant grows on different surfaces allowing you to get creative.
It prefers clay, loam, or richly amended soils with acidic content ranging from5.0 to 6.0. It tolerates a wide range of temperatures and does well in the 60°F to 75°F temperature range. Under proper planting conditions, it will thrive within six weeks. The plant may take up to two years to develop a proper carpet of moss. Ensure the moss is growing in a weed-free area with no competition for nutrients for optimal growth. The best time to plant the moss is during spring and autumn months.
Sheet moss has filaments in place of roots that supply nutrients to the plant.
