Queen Moss is an extremely rare moss that is bright green in colour tone, soft and fine in appearance. It is a very beautiful moss originating from Manaus in Brazil, South America. Very few specialised retailers worldwide have them as it due to its extreme rarity and very low availability.
The 1st photo is showing the actual Queen Moss grown by us. The 2nd photo is showing our Queen Moss, together with the Australian Native Mini Weeping Moss and Fissidens 'Fox'.
It is one of the few mosses which were found fully aquatic in South America. Although it is known more commonly by the name scientific name "Amblystegiaceae sp. Manaus", our research led us to an article by Akiyama Hiroyuki, a Japanese moss expert, who revealed it to be Hydropogonella Gymnostoma.
We were very thankful to be given the original specimen by a trusted hobbyist and friend in Australia. This moss is truly beautiful as a foreground or midground moss with its soft, fine and bright green appearance.
