    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

    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

    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!
    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..
