Is this ok for hermit crabs?
Answer by ChewyApr 12, 2021
This is a all natural moss that has a non-toxic fabric dye on it. It's safe for hermit crab enclosures but hermit crabs are known to eat material in their enclosure. It is recommended to soak the moss in warm water a couple times to remove all the dye and then put it in the enclosure.

Is the green sphagnum moss dyed? And if so, will the dye come out with water?
Answer by ChewyMar 06, 2021
The sphagnum moss is not dyed.

What’s the volume of the moss in the 0.33 lb bag? Alternatively, what are the weights of the 150 cubic inch and the 4 quart bags?
Answer by ChewyApr 15, 2021
A 1/3 pound of compressed moss expands to approximately 3 gallons. A 150 cubic inch bag weighs around .125 pounds and the 4 quart bags weighs around .35 pounds.

Is this sphagnum moss live or dried? Thanks
Answer by ChewyAug 30, 2021
This moss is not dried. Use sphagnum moss as natural decor in tropical tanks, a humidifier for any terrarium environment, or a substrate for carnivorous or live plants. This soft and leafy green moss holds moisture and naturally repels odors. Completing your tropical or wetland habitat with a thin layer of green sphagnum moss will help maintain the humidity of the tank as well as make it easier to clean up and maintain your terrarium. Sphagnum helps reptiles shed properly and live in an environment that supports their natural habits. Use in and pack around water dishes to allow easy access and lessen the risk of drowning. Replace moss once or twice a month depending on your pets' habits and terrarium size.

Not the best for humidity.

I use a mix of several mosses in my gecko terrarium, for looks as well as maintaining humidity levels. Of all the mosses I use this is my least favorite and the one I won't be purchasing again. There are no problems with the packaging or moss itself (which is why I'm rating 5 stars even though I don't *love* it) it just doesn't hold moisture very well or for very long and is very stringy and not appealing, nor very useful compared to the other mosses. Reindeer moss is fabulous for retaining water and has a lovely soft feel to it, I put it in the hideouts; pillow moss is great for the majority of the tank floor with the soil substrate, it stays moist and looks nice, providing a soft floor for the geckos. This moss, however, is hard to keep moist and to "tame" making the enclosure look like a hot mess. 5 stars for the quality and if you like this type of moss, it's a good price. I personally dislike it.

Very good product that came very fast (literally overnight)

shipped and delivered overnight and it’s an overall really great product. It’s actual spahgnum moss (the stuff they sell in stores is dead spahgnum moss). Would highly recommend this product from

Not what I was expecting

When I got the package, I was a bit surprised to see a rather flat package of moss. The label says 4 quarts by volume, which is a gallon. I guess it might be that much, if fluffed up. The product photo seems to show a fairly rounded/stuffed package, like a pillow, so it implies that there is more there than what you actually get. It's not a very expensive product, just over $3.00, so it's not a huge deal, but just be aware that you might not be getting what you expect, based on the product photo and description.

I absolutely love this moss!

I use moss for propagating plants, and have tried a number of different misses. This is absolutely one of my favorites. I am very, very disappointed to see that since I first purchased it 2 months ago- the pice has more than doubled. I guess I will be finding another place to purchase from!

As described

As described. It looks like Les than it really is, but once you add it to your enclosure and spritz it with the water, it will hydrate to look and feel better. Can't wait to set up the new email terrarium.

This product works great for my baby/juvenile leopard gecko for its humid hide

Perfect for redfoot tortoises

I'm not sure why some customers gave this moss a low rating, it's absolutely perfect for its intended use. It is a little dry/stiff out of the bag, but its just fine after a light sprits of water... It helps with humidity and is a natural antifungal. My baby redfoot LOVES burrowing and hiding in it. Highly recommend for tropical reptiles

Messy in Chewy packaging and a little damp

I like ordering from Chewy sometimes, but the packaging is terrible. Because of this, the bag of moss was beat up pretty badly and all over the rest of the items. The moss also seemed a little damp and smelled kind of moldy. In the future I will only buy moss like this in person to avoid the mess and to be able to check it for dampness.

Helped with humidity

Bought this to help better maintain our ball pythons humidity. I just add a few handfuls to his regular substrate and it's done wonders to keep his humidity up. Been using it for a few months now and have had no issues or complaints.
