    lol...its funny...I love sphagnum.....here is a latest pic of some spag growing with my B 52......I hope to have a green carpet sometime soon....I got this from rick keehns at keehnscarnivores....he says its probably new zealand sphagnum.



    I don't know how to get some of this live stuff anywhere....its soo hard to find live green sphagnum ..especially to buy it in canada. Consider the irony though, canada is one of the biggest producers of peat moss....lol! 100% canadian sphagnum peat.

    My next project is to put a layer down on my tank. That should keep the humidity up too so I don't have to keep using a humidifer then huh?

    The reason I started putting LFS in the bottom of my tanks was to increase humidity. I poured about 1/2 inch of water in the tank and let the moss wick the water up and provide humidity. My tanks were semi-sealed. It worked well AND I ended up with a thick green carpet on the bottom which sometimes ended up with little round-n-sticky-ums growing the moss below from stray seeds.

    I had just a small hand full and put it in my purp's pot, and by the end of 2 months or so, it had doubled in size, maybe more.

    I seem to have two different types of Sphagnum moss, one with big long tentacles/growing things, and the other with really short, thin, and compact growing things. I however like the second one the best!

    I think the second one is actually a sphagnum companion moss. Its not sphagnum. I have places where its like a inch size carpet in my terrarium as well. Yeah..looks ok..but its not sphagnum. Sphagnum can suck up 40 times its volume in water.
