It's natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, coupled with its ability to hold a vast amount of water, makes sphagnum moss an ideal temporary substrate for humidity loving amphibians.

New Zealand sphagnum moss is a vital part of any naturalistic reptile or amphibian enclosure. Placed above the soil layer and below the leaf litter layer, sphagnum moss mimics the layer of decayed plant material found right above the soil layer in the tropical jungle. It creates a more humid soil layer, while providing a home to beneficial microfauna.
Sphagnum moss can also be used as a stand alone substrate for quarantine or temporary enclosures.
