sphagnum moss?


Found in the woods, a moss. Looks like the sphagnum


Got this from the internet Sphagnum moss tends to grow in bogs or other places with high acidity. One of the things you will notice with sphagnum moss is that if you ring it, quite a bit of water will come out. The way you can tell sphagnum moss from other moss is due to the way it clusters, it has quite a different branching of stems than other mosses.
