What is the difference between cuckoo flax and sphagnum?

Sphagnum and cuckoo flax have some differences, although they belong to mosses. We can see these differences visually. First of all – the shape of the boxes. But in addition to the presence or absence of certain parts of the plant, their tissues also differ. In the sphagnum tissues that form the stem and leaves, there are a large number of dead cells. Cuckoo flax does not have them. Due to the presence of these cells, sphagnum absorbs and stores water. So sphagnum can absorb water, which will be 20 – 25 times its weight.
