Pilo Moss is an extremely rare weeping type of moss that is truly beautiful with its very compact, weeping growth pattern.
This unique moss can grow rhizoids (roots) on the underside of their fronds which helps it attach to objects as it grows. It is not to be confused with BBA.
The true version is very rare and Aquarzon has been growing this true version since many years ago.
It is unfortunate to note that majority of "Pilo Moss" being sold in Australia is not the actual Pilo Moss which is why some people who suffered accidentally buying another moss being deliberatedly/accidentally mislabelled as "Pilo Moss" have difficulty understanding why their moss doesn't grow weeping down even after growing it for many months.
This occurred years ago when one source in Australia sold over 50 portions of another moss as Pilo Moss and the buyers who did not know then accidentally sold the excess of them as Pilo Moss, causing the misidentification to be so widespread. That mislabelled moss is could not grow in weeping pattern.
The easiest way to identify Pilo Moss is to look out for its weeping growth pattern. When you have grown them in your aquarium for around 1 month you should be noticing the weeping growth pattern. It also has the tendency to grow tight downward curls.
Under Aquarzon's long term observations, unlike most other weeping type mosses, Pilo Moss grows quite flat which makes it a great groundcover and carpeting moss. It really looks stunning when grown to cover rocks and wood. It can form a beautiful cushion looking effect.
The Pilo Moss grown by Aquarzon is the true Pilo Moss. We took more than a year to patiently propagate it to have enough to offer to our customers due to its slower growth speed. The original specimen was originally purchased in Australia.
Aquarzon have propagated over 30 different aquatic mosses including other weeping types such as standard Weeping Moss, Mini Weeping Moss, Native Mini Weeping and Native Weeping Moss.
Our favourite aquascaping use of this moss is to have it growing to cover a portion of our large terraced rock. This enables a double aquascaping effect to be enjoyed which are the weeping pattern effect and the compact cushion cover effect.
