Peacock Moss - Taxiphyllum sp
Each portion 5x5 cm
The Peacock Moss is different from Christmas Moss in the sense that being from the genus of Taxiphyllum, it has a more softer and velvety texture, whereas the Christmas Moss, a Vesicularia species (Vesicularia montagnei), has a harder and rough texture. The overall effect of the Peacock Moss is much 'gentle' in a sense.
