Questions About Spanish Moss Plants

    My research shows it's better to leave the moss. Killing it chemically will make it look worse than when it was alive, and you will still have to remove it. It poses no harm to the tree. In fact, host trees usually were failing before the Spanish moss arrived. The best thing you can do is keep your tree healthy with adequate water and fertilizer.

    But if you want to give it a try, in our article, we say you can buy a commercial product called Bio Wash, and add 1/4 cup of baking soda or potassium bicarbonate per gallon of spray and it is supposed to work well.
