    Wasn't sure which forum to put it in since it's a mixture of a few, but at any rate, has anyone ever had a problem with spanish moss and CP's?

    I don't mean as a potting mix nor even a topping really. I'm setting up a tank and have a big ol' bag of spanish moss, so I was thinking of perhaps making a false bottom of egg crate and covering it with the spanish moss.

    I've put various Tillandsia on top of Nepenthes pots many a times, and never saw anything negative. So figuring that Spanish moss is Tillandsia usenoides (sp?), think there's any problems? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]

    If it's alive, it shouldn't cause any problems. If it's dead, it might be a good source of food for fungi (bad!), especially in a warm and humid terrarium.

    Make sure it has lots of light and that the "moss" won't cover itself too much.
    I hang them in my greenhouse with the rest of the neps without any problems...
