    Maybe if you pulled out a strand and took a shot of it...jk
    It looks like spagnum to me, tho.
    Plus, I've seen several people from NC report they have live sphag in their backyard, so I wouldn't doubt it for one second if that's the real deal.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Yeah, I'll definately go back there with my good camera and take better pictures tomorrow if it isn't raining.

    I'm still pretty convinced it's sphagnum. The stuff is unlike any moss I've seen before, plus it was very wet and seemed to retain a lot of water.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    It doesn't look like Sphagnum to me. It's missing the fluffy "rosettes" on the tops that are typical of Sphagnum.

    IIRC, it does have those rosettes NAN. The pictures just don't show them too well.

    Better pictures are in order. lol

    Wow, your phone camera takes awesome pics compared to mine. It looks a little like sphagnum... Maybe you could put some in a pot and try growing something in it?

    It doesn't look quite right for sphagnum to me either.
    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?
