One Gallon of Spanish Moss ~LIVE!~


10 per item plus $8.00 shipping - - Posted Aug 14, 2017

Harvested from my yard on Florida's Gulf Coast, the day you order it, this Spanish Moss is absolutely gorgeous with a light greenish gray color. It is soft and fluffy. I will hand pick the moss on the day you place your order and carefully hand-separate the moss, removing extraneous twigs, leaves and branches.

I will send you a one gallon sized ziploc bag full of live moss (approximately 10 oz. by weight, packaged) via USPS Priority Mail (2 day). The USPS-Produced Envelope measures 12-1/2" x 9-1/2"

Spanish Moss is an epiphyte which absorbs nutrients and water through its leaves from the air and rainfall. Spanish Moss, sometimes called "Grandfather's Graybeard" or "Florida Moss", is soft, graceful, eerie and beautiful all at the same time. A romantic symbol of the South, it is light greenish-silver after a rain, and grayish-silver at other times.

Despite its name, Spanish Moss (Tillandsia usneoidesand) is actually a rootless bromeliad--not a moss-- that gets moisture and nutrients from the air. You can let it hang from a basket (it's shown here with other air plants in photo #5). It can also be used for floral arrangements and a myriad of craft projects (see images 3 & 4)

What to expect upon arrival:
This is raw, natural, LIVING Spanish Moss. (It is not the same as the dried moss that you see in the craft stores. ) It is organic and not treated in any way. I send the moss misted so that it endures the shipment but it is IMPORTANT that you unpack the LIVE PLANTS from the package upon arrival.

Care: Soaking or misting with rain water is best. Distilled water is the next best option. (Tap water is sufficient but can hinder continued growth because of existing chlorine and minerals.) Attach moss to basket/hanging location loosely to allow proper airflow . Bunching it together will restrict oxygen needed for the plants survival.


Shipping cost via Priority Mail 2-Day envelope is $8.00 to all other continental US locations

About Andrea Metcalf

#1 I used to live in a small town that no one has ever heard of-GPS doesn't even work here-it might as well be the Bermuda Triangle of upstate NY...then I moved to New York, NY #2 I don't BELONG here... (I don't know WHERE I belong (yet) but it is probably another planet...another TIME, at least) #3 Maybe I belong in Ireland?...I loved it there-being there made me believe in reincarnation. #4 My BA is in English...but I worked for a design firm in Manhattan... #5 although I am, first and foremost, an artist. #6 I graduated from high school when I was 16 and went away to college #7 but it took me seven years to complete my degree...a wanderer even then. #8 I know the journey is the important part. #9 I am open, loving, accepting of others #10 until you piss me off- because I will just disappear. I don't have time or patience to suffer fools. #11 I WANT AN AIRSTREAM. #12 I love the sea ...any body of water...waterfalls... #13 AND wearing very high heels. #14 I used to live on a farm with goats and chickens and a huge vegetable garden-I am great at canning #15 but I am not a 'hippie'-don't try to define me-you can't (it will only serve to frustrate you and piss me off ;) ). #16 I love love- and wear my heart on my sleeve. Passionate. Sensual. Freakin Supernova. #17 I am fanciful but sensible-I don't believe in the notion of soulmates or the societal convention of marriage...if I EVER settle down it will be because I have found love that transcends the need for the piece of paper. #18 I collect photos of rainbows I have seen. #19 I have 11 piercings but only 3 tattoos-need more. #20 I have soft, pale smooth skin-and some stretchmarks-that I treasure! -because they measure how I have grown. show more
