I just wanted to update this, I finally received my order from AquaticMagic, and all of it was bone dry and BROWN. I think the dried sphagnum moss I buy for my hermit crabs has more life than the package I received.. I was so disappointed, because I ordered 5 different kinds of miss and I don't think any of them could possibly back to life :(
Oh well... I did get a refund from them (I asked yesterday) but now I can't leave feedback on ebay because I agreed to cancel our transactions (seems reasonable, since I *did* get all of my money back).
