    Question humidity for growing sphagnum moss?

    Hi, I have some really small samples of sphagnum moss that I found in one of my pots. They are not very big parts of the moss, as I said before, they are really small. Right now they are in a pot of 1/2 peat 1/2 perlite, do I need to have high humidity/what are the light requirements for growing just plain sphagnum?

    thanks a bunch!

    Low light, or high light. Low will make fluffy, elongated moss while high light will make tight, compact moss. I prefer the latter.

    High humidity is good and grows moss faster IME, and LFS will actually make it's own little micro-climate around it's self as it respirates. I can't imagine trying to get any sizable amount of moss from a few tiny starter heads. I actually have a whole gallon of live moss in the auction right now that you should consider bidding on. You'd get a lot of live, full-sun grown moss AND support the NASC at the same time. Win win situation.
