    Milling Live Sphagnum

    A few people have suggested Milling some Live Sphagnum for various projects (Darlingtonia, root cuttings, several types of Drosera, etc). I had a question about this however. I do not have that much Live Spagnum, barely a cup full, but I have lots of sprouts springing up.

    How does one mill Spagnum? Do you just chop it like you'd chop stuff for stew? Do you use a blender?

    How does Spagnum grow? If I chop up a strand of growing, healthy Spagnum, will the pieces grow into new strands, or just die? I understand there's spores involved somehow?

    I use a small food processor and add it from the top in small amounts. Does a nice job of cutting into very fine matter.

    If I take one of my healthy neon green strands and chop it into two pieces, will both pieces grow into new strands?
