Yamagoke is a dead moss used to cover Kanuma and Akadama
soils from Japan. Collected in china washed and pressure
packed cleanly - this moss has several purposes:
1. – It holds the
light soils in place when watering when the moss dries out
it does not separate from the soil.
2. – Holds humidity in the soil – Species like Azaleas like
to be kept moist not wet and it keeps moisture at the
surface to keep feeder roots alive.
3. - Yamagoke is an acidic moss that leaches a small amount
of acid into the soil when watering (Azaleas love it)
Used when potting –
get the tree set and soil in place but before watering –
Have the yamagoke in a bucket of water well soaked. Taking
a hand full of moss - ring out the excess water and apply
to the surface approximately ½ inch thick (of course
depending on the size of the pot) – press firmly all over
and into the nooks and crannies on Nabari and around the
edge of the pot. Then water the tree thoroughly from
overhead until the water runs clear from the bottom.
