Spagmoss Production

Deep on the West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island, water flows from the spectacular Southern Alps feeding the natural habitat of Sphagnum moss. From this pristine environment we harvest Sphagnum cristatum and Sphagnum subnitens to produce Spagmoss.

The natural beneficial properties of New Zealand sphagnum are enhanced by our exceptional production processes. The labour intensive process begins when the moss is hand picked from swamps which are dedicated to the farming of Sphagnum moss. After being extracted from the swamp by helicopter it is transported to Coastpak where the second phase of the processing begins.

Sphagnum Moss Substrate Quality

To ensure Besgrow provide you with only the highest quality Spagmoss products we have long-established quality control procedures in place. Throughout production Sphagnum moss is monitored to ensure the product meets our quality standards. As Besgrow Spagmoss products are harvested from carefully managed, sustainable swamps you can be confident that Besgrow products will always be available to you.

Besgrow Spagmoss is naturally air dried to preserve the optimal quality of the moss. Spagmoss passes through a series of cleaning techniques, both mechanical and manual, where contamination is removed. Cleaned moss is packed into various sizes to be shipped worldwide.

Grades of Sphagnum Moss.

There are approximately 150 spicies of Spahgnum Moss found world wide and these specieis can differ greatly in size, colour and chemical properties. Sphagnum cristatum is generally considered the highest quality moss available and grows natively in New Zealand. It is known for its robust leaf structure and longer stem lengths that are great for wrapping around roots. Some report good success with 5 star Chilean moss which is predominately Sphagnum magellanicum. Chilean moss has shorter strands but is very leafy which can reduce the air available to the plant when compacted into a pot. Less expensive mosses may be found originating from Japan (typically Sphagnum palustre) and China (typically Sphagnum palustre or Sphagnum cuspidatum).

Spagmoss is effective

Besgrow Spagmoss is hand-picked and naturally air dried to ensure its quality and remarkable water holding capacity (maximum WHC of 96%). This allows the moss to retain water and nutrients for easy release to the plant without accumulating unwanted soluble salts. Growing in high quality media lessens plant management costs and improves plant health. Orchid growers can be certain that Spagmoss will deliver tangible benefits.
