Sphagnum Moss, has tremendous moisture holding capacity and is capable of absorbing 20 times its weight in water. This allows the plants to grow with constant moisture (but not saturated), while also allowing exposure to air. This assures a better utilization of water resources and low frequency irrigation when compared to other substrates.
It is the combination of moisture and air that offers an extraordinary process of oxygenation to the roots of the plant. This contributes to faster growth, allowing in the case of Orchid flowers, a longer life in the flowering stage. The Sphagnum Moss provides antiseptic properties because it contains a phenolic compound called “Sphagnol", which helps the plant resist diseases and parasites.
