The Sphagnum fuscum is an extremely resistant species and particularly suitable for cultivation with sundews and other small plants. Although it grows quickly, it tends to compact without submerging the plants. It forms in a short time a dense and low cushion of sphagnum, which does not need to be pruned. It is well suited for a monospecific nursery: as in the case of the Sphagnum subnitens, this species is the right compromise between large species but too intrusive to grow with smaller plants, and between small species but too slow to grow.


This clone comes from Estonia, and is almost certainly Sphagnum fuscum, although it may also be Sphagnum beothuk or a particularly brown form of Sphagnum capillifolium. It's characterized by extremely compact growth and prefers oligotrophic environments.



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.
