    No problem. I need to go find my in situ photos. S. compactum looked very golden when we found it. The Newport News Sphag is that color in situ, very easy to spot. S. molle on the other hand, that's both green and red with proper light.

    Here is another one, photo taken in the wild, so the Sphagnum is a little bit contaminated with sedges and Drosera rotundifolia:



    As there are only a few red Sphagnum species, I think it's Sphagnum rubellum, but I'm not sure about.

    The photo had been taken in the area of Midtjylland, Denmark. This sphagnum was growing on a south facing slope in a headwaters source region. I think the location in Northern Europe helps much to grow this species in such a nice red: Low temperatures in northern summers, and many hours of sunshine during summer because of the high latitude towards the Polar Circle.

    I don't have red sphagnum in my own mini-bogs, but as I have heard from other growers in Germany, even in outdoor cultivation the red type sphagnum does not grow as red as it does in nature.

    Jesse, wait until you see Sphagnum magellanicum for the Southeast, US! It's even redder than S. rubellum. I'll put some more Sphagnum photos up here soon.

    Sphagnum magellanicum from North or South Carolina, or Florida.
