New Zealand spagnum moss increased water ppm

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

A couple of weeks ago I decided to buy some New Zealand spagnum moss as a top dressing for my sarracenia purpurea. It looked great. However I did a random water test today in its tray and the reading was around 200ppm. I have since removed the moss and watered the top of the pot about 5 times so now the reading is around 60ish ppm.  I tested my water source and that was well below 50ppm and other sarracenia water trays where fine too so i knew it was the spagnum causing the high number. Question is have I missed something as I thought spagnum moss was fine to use hence why I got it?
