    Unhappy

    Does anyone have a method to reduce/eliminate this moss. I believe that sometimes it is so vigorous that it forces my CP into less than optimum conditions, even so far as to cause them to fail. Help [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    The best thing to do is repot the plant or remove the moss with tweesers (itll take a long time lol). Or just take the plant out, remove the climps of moss, and send moss to a person who likes them [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Hmm.. what if you can't get it out with tweezers? I have several pots of seedling Pings that the moss has overgrown but when I pull at it with tweezers the soil comes up too and pulls the baby Pings with it! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
    I found a good way to help prevent moss though.. microwaving the peat before using it has worked wonders.... it's been months and still no moss in the pots I microwaved before planting..
