The cushion moss, also known as the white moss tree, is among the favorite plant species in many gardens.

The cushion moss plant belongs to the genus Leucobryum glaucum and forms tufts. You may find it commonly in moist woods or swampy areas in North America. The cushion moss is native to North American, and it is renowned for its great size, making the plant look like a cushion. 

Cushion moss has a remarkable ability to absorb and retain water, making it require less care except for occasional watering and treatments. Under perfect conditions, the cushion moss takes about 3 to 6 months to attain its peak growth. As a result, these notable species have seldom seen any reddish-brown spore cases.  

The cushion moss is characterized by a low dome shape once fully grown. Cushion moss grows 12mm to 12.5 cm tall on average. However, the cushion leavers become wider at one-third the length. Hence, their leaves tend to be wider at the bottom.

Cushion moss is best grown under a moderate or heavy shade. The most exciting attribute of cushion moss is its independence from ground nutrients. All the plant needs are a stable base, and it will sprawl out conveniently. Due to its easy breeding nature, cushion moss requires adequate care and can spice up any garden under suitable conditions. 

You can grow moss in a compacted space. In addition, you must remove air pockets by smoothing the breeding ground. Also, you should ensure that you remove weeds from their breeding space as these weeds could infect or harm their growth.  

You can flavor your garden by decorating its soil surface with paving stones or fine rocks. The decoration can also help keep away leaf litter. 

The fall and spring season is ideal for planting moss. Moss thrives in moist or damp regions and tolerates a drier climate. However, you can keep this plant indoors. If you need an indoor cushion moss, all you need is to get yourself a clear glass container, e.g., a terrarium. Then, plant the cushion moss and decorate the container if you choose to, with granulated charcoal. 

You should ensure that the plant is firmly stuck to the soil in the container when planting. Make necessary adjustments if the soil is fluffy, then sprinkle some water on the plant to help provide sufficient moisture for the soil in the container.
