Riccardia sp (Pelia Moss AKA Easiest Moss we Sell)
RICCARDIA sp (PELIA MOSS)
This is a more "wirery" moss. It is more stiff and "Brillo" pad like if that makes sense.
We have found that it is a bit easier to contain because of its more durable nature.
This moss is more dense and less flowy than other types of moss like a taiwan or flame moss.
If you have fish that might potentially forage on plants, this would be one to try as it might handle the abuse of Cichlids or Goldfish.
Low light or high light, this plant doesn't care. (Though it can handle high light, it doesn't like super high temps (above say 82.)
On a scale of 1 to 10. One being you could grow it in your toilet. THIS PLANT IS A 1!
Two good clumps of moss with dark green coloring. Couldn't ask for more.
Got my two plants, they had worms and snails. Which I understand can happen. And they were not “fluffy” and full as I expected. I washed them, put them in tank, and they haven’t flourished. They don’t look well. Not sure of the issue but they seemed to be a “dud.”
I’m loving the Pelia Moss! It looks great and is super easy to use. It gives the tank a lush look and provides a great place for foraging critters.
Riccardia moss arrived in excellent condition and exceeded my expectations, both in quality and quantity for the price. Just glued on driftwood as soon as it arrived and instantly gives my new tank a mature look. The picture doesn’t do justice as there’s more moss and driftwood towards the surface of the 125 gallon. Also ordered alternanthera reineckii recently from Dustin and it didn’t disappoint. I have ordered moss online in the past from other sellers that was subpar in quantity and quality. Will be ordering from Dustin again. :)
always bigger portion than expected. Can’t wait to finish scaling my 30 gallon
