    Interesting, I've never made a substrate to start sphagnum just grind up the dry stuff, wet it and keep it moist and humid and lit up until it sprouts. What does the peat do for it?

    You should know better than to put something online and then expect it not to get plagiarized! lol

    The peat provides moisture buffering for drier climates... its made mine maintenance free even during the dog days of summer.

    It's by no means a requirement... but it sure does help for outside sphag beds

    If you notice the one pic, the grass is dead from record drought conditions... but the big container of sphag is vibrant green

    Yeah I know but to see it so obviously done sux... and after I got to lookign around I found quite a few places using it. Almost all either gave credit or asked first... but a couple didnt, including another cp forum site.

    Yes, growing sphag indoors under lamps is way easier than by the sun! I can't do it on my patio at all, the afternoon sun just bakes it black even if it's wet and under a humidity dome. Maybe if I tried it with peat it might survive... next spring, too cold to think about it now!

    A fellow sculptor I know was told by a prospective client that they had already seen several of the pieces in his portfolio, which is impossible since he's just getting started. Well, it turns out, like most of us, he had all his portfolio sculpts on his website with nice large resolution photos...
