Q.Spanish Moss

Anonymous added on January 20, 2015 | Answered

Should it be soaked in dry climates? I live in southern California and it can be pretty dry (12 inches of rain average). Have purchased some spanish moss and am hanging it from an oak tree. Realize this is not an ideal climate, so should I be misting it or soaking it in water?

In addition to soaking it in water, I would recommend treating the Spanish moss with neem oil. This is an organic insecticide, which should take care of any pests but will not harm the plant or you. As a bonus, it doubles as a fungicide should any other issues pop up while you are growing it. Here is more information on neem oil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/pesticides/neem-oil-uses.htm
