Sphagnum moss is used by gardeners to line hanging baskets, make floral wreaths and fill topiary frames. Sphagnum moss can be used for growing carnivorous plants and bonsai and is also used for reptile bedding.  By laying sphagnum moss around the tops of houseplants it will help to retain moisture and allow for more time between watering.
