can you use spanish moss for vfts and other cps?
It can be used as a ground cover (NOT as a soil substrate, as far as I know its poisonous) but can overcome the plant and tends to shed rather than soak up water.

Absolutely not, use only long-fibered/milled sphagnum moss.
Only use longfibered moss...most people use canadian moss ( it will say on the package ).

If you are getting milled ( like soil ) get the one that says Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss.

Some brands will 'cut' other things into the mix. We use Schultz brand Peat moss....we have tried other brands and have found them to be harmful for some of our plants.

Decorative Moss, Spanish Moss, or really anything like that is harmful to these plants.
