The Sphagnum magellanicum is one of the largest species of sphagnum moss.

It is widespread in circumpolar areas and central Europe and it characterizes the bryophytes vegetation of large peat bogs. It has a very fast growth capacity which, together with the robustness of the species, makes it ideal for growing with bigger plants. Sometimes you may need to "prune" the sphagnum, if it had grown to incorporate the rhizomes of the plants. When exposed to direct sunshine acquires a crimson red colour and the heads will form a very compact “carpet”.

Clones Detail:

P31 - Location "Friuli" (Italy) - It has a tendency to green color

P32 - Location Germany - It has a tendency to green/yellow color - Probably is a very strong and robust clone of S. palustre

P33 - Location Germany - It has a tendency to green color and the heads are very large

Notice: According to the new taxonomy, none of the European clones present in this site will be identified as Sphagnum magellanicum (which is no longer recognized as a European species), but are species belonging to the "magellanicum complex" (e.g. Sphagnum medium, or Sphagnum divinum). 

Future updates on the identification of the various clones will follow.

In any case, the clone code will remain unchanged.

Notice: The identification of the sphagnum species of this site is not 100% certain, because it has not yet been possible to make genetic analysis, but only morphological. For this reason, the identification of some species may be subject to changes due to new and more accurate analysis. When the identification of an already distributed clone is changed, the species name is changed, but the clone code remains the original one. For this reason, it is important to keep a record of the clone codes in your collection.
