    Awesome, now listen!

    By Sara on Oct 11, 2021

    It's brick of moss. All moisture has been taken out. Bathe the brick in water and you got great moss! It's not a bright color, but hello it isn't alive, so yeah it's not going to be bright green. It's not dusty, and if it is, you need to add more water. And to avoid mold, SQUEEZE OUT ALL EXCESS WATER. It shouldn't be soggy. I love this for my toads and frogs.

    Mold issues

    By Catthecat on Aug 24, 2021

    I’ve purchased it 3 times now. 2/3 times it has gotten moldy the day after hydration. Same kind of mold both times. I’d suspect that the moss at the factory is carrying spores. I most likely will not get this particular item again at least for a few years.

    I'm half and half on this product..

    By RenaaaStarr1996 on Jul 28, 2021

    At first I was like woah this is alot of moss..but then i was like it smells icky and made my geckos enclosure have this nasty musty smell which kinda sucks. But this stuff is great for shedding tropical geckos and holding in humidity so I guess im on the edge..try it for yourself!

    Awesome moss topper substrate

    By bean on Jan 25, 2021

    I put this moss as a topper on coco substrate for my crested gecko to try and stop him from accidentally ingesting the substrate. It works great! Keeps the humidity in the tank high and does the job at helping him not ingest substrate. This package also comes with A LOT of moss, so you will be set for a while if you aren't using it as the base and as a topper instead.

    Poor Quality Control

    By Jolie on Oct 25, 2020

    I had high hopes for this product- actually, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. I had reasonable standards for this product. I wasn’t expecting anything terrific, but I wanted what I asked for: 100% forest moss. I pulled apart some of the brick and was disappointed almost immediately. There were multiple hairs/fur fibers intertwined with the moss (of different textures and lengths but all light-colored). Stems of random plants are normally to be expected; no company is perfect. But whole sticks and stems from other random plants? Really? I guess I got what I paid for. There was even green plastic in there (which couldn’t have been from the packaging because there’s no green plastic on it).

    5 star from my frog he loves it

    By broths on Nov 9, 2020

    there was more moss from this then i expected wow. my frog loves it and was perfect for the coming cold weather. half my tank is water and the other was rocks, so putting this over the top of rocks helps alot. keeps him from freezing and he can burrow into it. great price as well.

    By rory on Dec 20, 2020

    I definitely should’ve split the bricks in half, got way more than I actually needed haha but now that I know I will remember that. Good price, bought for my snails.

    Perfect for Brazilian Rainbow Boa

    By Slytherin1 on Nov 21, 2020

    This is perfect for my rainbow boa. He has several hides with different substrates so he can choose where he wants to be, and this is always his preferred spot. Helps keep the humidity high as well.
