Bryophytes!

The moss above is referred to as Hylocomium splendens. It’s common name is a lot more fun though– Glittering wood moss… thats a pretty cool name.

It may look like an average moss, however, this species has multiple uses and should not be overlooked. It is great to use when lining storage boxes for fruit and vegetables. Get this, sometimes its even used for filling the gabs between logs when building a cabin! Just wait, I’m not done, this moss even contains anti-bacterial qualities. I guess good things really do come in small packages.
