Pilo Moss is an extremely rare weeping type of moss that is truly beautiful with its very compact, weeping growth pattern. It is so rare that only a few specialised international places retail them due to its lack of availability. It is unfortunate to note that majority of "Pilo Moss" being sold in Australia is not the actual Pilo Moss. 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 a few weeks, you should be noticing the weeping growth pattern. It also has the tendency to grow tight downward curls.
Unlike most other weeping type mosses, Pilo Moss grows very 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 100% 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.
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.
