    long fiber sphagnum growing in my yard!!!

    I dump my runoff from watering of my neps off my porch.
    I noticed today sphagnum growing on my lawn
    It's the lime green in the pics.
    Is this normal
    It's pouring rain out right now so the pics arn't great.





    I have to say, What?

    So you think it got there from your runoff water? In any case - very cool. I have such a hard time growing this stuff for some reason. And for you it's a weed!

    nightsky, It wasn't there before and it's growing right where I dump the water.
    I am one of those geeks that looks everywhere around them for plant life. I know what is around me and what changes
    If you can get some live LFS and plant it so the long fibers are going deep into the pot and keep the water level up near the top of the pot it should take hold. After it takes hold it should grow almost on it's own.

    I didn't mean to make it sound like I was doubting you. Very cool. Lotsa spores in your runoff water.

    It might have been there but not been abundant till now. I would assume your mowing and watering maintains the patch.
    that makes no logic
