This is level 5A New Zealand sphagnum moss, the best you can get! It is loosely layered for minimal damage. Primarily used by the Japanese for the Neofinetia falcata. The strands range between 8 and 18 inches.

 

Typically this 100 gram bag will pot just over 20 repots using 3 to 3.5 Neofinetia pots. For those buying the half bag, you can repot just over 10. This is when you use the 5A moss for the outer layer only. for the inner layer we reccomend using only the standard 3A moss.

 

Since this is an expensive and exclusive moss, and some collectors might not have more than a dozen neos to repot, we are now offering half bags of this product.

 

If you are on a budget and want more moss for the money, we recommend buying the 1 kilo bag of moss at $50. Open the bag, put it in an appropriate bin, apply enough water for the brick to sit in a couple inches of water, and let it soak and expand for about 1 to 2 hours. Then when the moss is puffy, slowly seperate the long fibers. They will be thicker than the 5A moss fibers, but will get the job done well and you'll have a lot of moss to work with.


IN SPIKE: 
An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

NOT IN-SPIKE:
An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
