Sphagnum is a lightweight material that can help with all forms of gardening. It can be mixed with soil. Dried sphagnum is also used in horticulture as seedbeds.
It is the perfect choice as a mat for other plants to grow on as sphagnum moss increases the water and nutrient capacity in the soil by increasing the capacity of cation exchange and capillary forces. Peat moss can firmly hold the plant even if it gets heavy and large.
Sphagnum can also act as a protector for succulents. As sphagnum can absorb water rapidly and maintain the moisture content, it allows the succulents to stay hydrated. This type of moss also has antibacterial properties that help cuttings stay healthy and make your garden look fresh as well. This type of moss can also be used for air layering and lining hanging baskets.
