    Thank you! Now, how to get my grubby mitts on some.... Or how to grow it. It's so pretty, hard to believe it's moss.

    You can buy it online and on ebay... just search for haircap moss on ebay, or polytrichum using google.
    I know there are at least two vendors.. one educational based and one gardening based

    I know of one reference that says not to use it with drosera... but it is becoming more popular with neps and helis both as a top dressing and as a substrate component.

    I wasn't even thinking of using it with my CPs, just growing it on its own because I like how it looks. I do have one nep, though. Maybe it'd like some haircap moss.

    This belongs to a good friend of mine... he's the one that got me interested in its possible use



    I've also seen a picture from A. Wistuba where he used it in a simular application.

    Its very pretty,

    Does it contribute to the health of CPs at all, or does it just make it more pleasing to the eye?

    it supposedly does decently as a substrate component, but I don't have any first hand knowledge
    as far as I know, its use is mainly cosmetic at this point.

    Seems like a beautiful and serene place. I really gotta see CPs in the wild. >_>
