Subject: Where do you buy your sphagnum moss? Replies: 18

OK, thanks.  Great help!  I gave up on the nurseries and big box stores and followed the advice given here.  The local "Feed and Seed" farm supply houses have the Mosser Lee 3.5 cubic foot brick - they did not have them in stock, but one of them should have it by Friday - $29.99. 

I've used the search function and found lots of great info on this discussion forum. 

Can I sneak in a couple of additional questions?

What method do you use to chop the sphagnum moss?

For the South Louisiana residents:  When would be the appropriate time to start rooting my fig cuttings in a bag?  This would be 3 weeks before the last frost, right?  Not sure when that would be, exactly, but I imagine it would be around.....now.  Any agreement on this?

Note:  I live in Lafayette, about 50 miles west of Baton Rouge.

Thanks! J. Stewart

Dumb question I know, and sorry if this subject is being re-hashed.  

I am starting about 120 cuttings in 20 ounce cups and I was going to use the 50-50 sphagnum:perlite ratio. 

I went to Lowes and Home Depot and did not want to spend a small fortune just on sphagnum moss - and I'm not even sure that they carry the right stuff.   I visited a couple of local nurseries.  I started running into variations on "sphagnum moss" like "sphagnum peat moss" etc.  My main question is exactly what kind (brand and exact type) of sphagnum moss do you use, and where would I find it in a quantity larger than the 4 quart bags that they offer at the local big box stores/nurseries?  Are there any known online sources?  Thanks.
