    There is a swamp I don't remember what island not the big island though,
    maybe you could get some that originates from there if it grows there or maybe yu could look for species of sphagnum from a non cp site like a guy who collects sphagnum ?

    That's what I'm hoping for the second part at least don't think I'd have any luck or I'd be arrested possibly. thanks though I'll see if I can find someone that gows sphagnum.

    Why not just buy a compressed brick of New Zealand LFS? It seems like with a little bit of time it will come back to life. At least that has been my experience with it. You can find it on various websites for varying prices. I was just looking around online, and found a few sources of dried LFS. Of course, New Zealand isn't Tropical, but I imagine the LFS would grow fairly well in a wide range of climates (it does just fine in my hot as balls San Diego heat).

    Lets rephrase that,a guy who collects the species like cp people or people who maintanes a collection of sphagnum. Sorry about it not being clear I have some lfs I keep moist it is turning green does that mean it is alve ? It does not really look like my live stuff.

    You can grow your own from the dried LFS. For just 4 bucks, a little light and water and a few months, can give you a nice colony.
