Moss growing around the base of a wetland plant can be a plus if it helps
to maintain a high humidity around the plant and keeps the soil from drying
out. It becomes a detriment when it grows so tall as to cover the plant and
keep sunlight from getting to the leaves. So, it is a mixed bag. Keep an
eye on it, and if it starts to adversely affect the D. aliciae, then you
can start to control it.
