Taxiphyllum sp. 'Giant'


Like Taxiphyllum alternans 'Taiwan', the 'Giant' moss is a very attractive moss for greening stones and roots. As the name suggests, the leaflets and growth of the moss fronds are somewhat larger. The appearance of this pretty moss is nevertheless very attractive and an enrichment for any underwater landscape. Like all mosses, the 'Giant' moss loves fresh and clear water. Regular pruning promotes healthy and compact growth.
