    I don’t think you should put peat moss on this. it is highly argued that the harvesting of peat moss is sustainable. Many of the Canadian companies claim to sustainably harvest the peat moss and that peat moss is growing 70 times faster than its being harvested. the problem with that is because the operation are relatively small. they are picking up speed and becoming larger. this might not sound that bad but its the process that they harvest the bogs. Since it is a bog, no machinery can go onto the bog without sinking in. In order to get to the bog they have to dig trenches to drain water way. Obviously this pretty much destroys the entire wetland especially when they dig it all up. Although these Canada forces the companies to rebuild the wetlands, they can take decades to recover and there many scientist that believe it will never be the same. sphagnum moss is growing 70 times faster than they can harvest so much of it, but that’s because there is so much, but it has a threshold and if they harvest too much with the rate it takes to somewhat grow back could cause a lot of problems.
