    Live Sphagnum Moss Giveaway!

    Up for grabs are five (5) sandwich bags stuffed with live sphagnum moss. The moss is freshly collected and free to the first five (5) members to post and pm me. All I ask is $6 for shipping sent to my paypal. Good luck!

    Edit: This particular species is native to Michigan and therefore considered temperate. Because it requires a dormancy, it is not suited for tropical growing environmenrts.

    Even though I stumbled on this 1 minute after it was created I'll forfeit my share for someone who needs it more. Great giveaway

    If this is the native Michigan species, you ought to mention that, since many people will assume this a tropical variety and they will use it in an environment that offers no winter dormancy.

    Tropical variety? Never heard of it. I know that there are dozens of species but I am under the impression that sphagnum from a cold climate could grow in a warm climate. I am also under the impression that sphagnum doesn't require a dormancy. I have sent multiple members this moss and, as far as I know, have had good luck growing it with nepenthes.
    Can you clarify?

    Temperate sphagnum will only last a year or so in tropical conditions without a cold dormancy. It may appear to do well for quite a while but, will inevitably fail in a tropical environment.

    What Johnny said. Temperate Sphagnum will eventually fail in a Nepenthes setting. You need to use the type they grow in SoCal and Hawaii. Mine came from SoCal.

    I wouldn't mind some moss, not concerned since I grow in a temperate climate.
