Adding Sulfur to Moss Terrariums

Moss thrives in acidic soil and some terrarium websites suggest adding sulfur to terrarium soil to raise acidity levels. I have tried this in a few of my newer terrariums but have yet to see any difference in the growth patterns. I also sprinkled a few chunks of sulfur into the grandaddy wine jug terrarium and yet again have noticed no difference.

Has anyone tried this before and observed any positive or negative effects?


  1. All I have to do is water it, I have well water which goes through a water softner that contains sulfur. ;)

  2. Never thought of that before, though my water is fairly soft. I found this interesting discussion on optimum growing conditions for Mosses here:


    Interesting they recommend Coco bedding.


Let's hear it!
