Sphagnum Moss

I picked up my year's supply of sphagnum moss at the potting party last Saturday. The price was around $100. This always seems like a lot of money, but if I start adding up the retail cost of small packages until I get to 240 liters, it is a bargain.

Getting orchid supplies from our orchid society is a great convenience. Luckily, we have a member with the space to store the different things we use in potting orchids.

  1. You may like to know that Calwest Orchid Supplies has the same sphagnum moss in 1 kg size (80 liters)for $24:

    With shipping I guess it's pretty close to the same price per kg as you got, but it's a more convenient size.
