Taiwan Moss has a dense and bushy growth habit, with slender branches that form intricate patterns.
It is an excellent choice for creating natural-looking moss carpets or attaching to driftwood and rocks.
The moss can vary in color from light green to deep green, depending on the lighting conditions.
Provide moderate lighting for optimal growth. Avoid excessive light intensity, as it can cause the moss to turn brown or deteriorate.
Maintain stable water parameters with a temperature range of 68-82°F (20-28°C) and a pH range of 6.0-7.5.
Regularly trim the moss to control its growth and maintain its desired shape.
