Great for eating, nesting or boosting  humidity.

Sphagnum moss can store water, since both living and dead plants can hold large quantities of water inside their cells; plants may hold 16 to 26 times as much water as their dry weight, depending on the species.

It will expand significantly when you add water. Do not soak it to the point of it being water logged and dripping. Add water slowly until it moist and fluffy.

Add to a container and your crabs will eat and nest in it.

Place the container near your heat pad and it will help create humidity. Re-wet as needed.

Replace when your container is more debris than moss. Sphagnum lasts a long time.
