    Question

    what is the benificial effect of live moss. Does it just look nice, or is it a ground cover for the dirt, or does it grow in the bog, or what.

    fre8train,

    Live sphagnum is a great meduim for just about all CP. Its natural acidity gives it superb antibacterial and antifungal properties when used as is for the larger growing genera like Sarracenia and Nepenthes or milled up in a food processor as a topdressing for smaller plants like Drosera and Utricularia. It looks nice, but it is also an indicator of good conditions; if the moss grows the plants will too. If the moisture levels get too low, the moss will appear dry at the tips: a great clue that humidity or watering needs to be addressed. Its a great base for the bottom of pots (keeps the peat mixes from washing out of the holes). I honestly have not found a CP that will not grow in this medium, although some do better in other mixes. Milled moss is a good seed starting medium. It's also the best packing material I know of, keeping plants moist and protected when shipping. I couldn't live without it. I think it should run for president.
