    Live Sphagnum Moss Propagation

    I did a search here for a place to get Live Sphagnum Moss and I read that you can grow live sphagnum from dead Long Fibered Sphagnum, but I've been using it for like 3 years now and I never get any live sphagnum growing out of it, I usually use it as a top dressing for my sarrs. Maybe it's just because they don't stay wet enough as a top dressing? BTW, I have a good source to buy LFS from but now I'm just curious as to how I can grow my own... since then I don't have to buy anything. :P

    i seem to get live growth when using New Zealand LFS.
    Try it in a covered bag, or pot and you should see some live growth after a few weeks.

    I have a very good source of LFS. It's in a ditch near my house. Matter of fact I have found hundreds of ditches with LFS growing in it.

    Ozzy, I'm sure that's not the only joy of living in NC. >_>

    Av8tor1, I'll save that as a favorite for later but I forgot to mention that I have absolutely no LFS right now. I originally had an N. sanguinea growing in pure LFS but the dog ate most of it. (It left the sanguinea though.) So, since I don't have any LFS I can't use the methods explained on that site, but thanks it'll help me when I actually get some. I think Sarracenia Northwest is my best bet so I'm going to start there if I can't get any of my own to sprout.

    Pingman, not sure if the stuff I have is from New Zealand... nope it's from Wisconsin. The brand is Mosser Lee, I think this is the same kind that California Carnivores sells. I remember asking about this a while ago and someone said that the kind that you buy at Lowes and stuff is sterilized and that's actually exactly where I got it. It doesn't say that it's sterilized on the package... at least I don't think it does.. it's 3-years old.. a bit beat up.
