    Sphagnum Appreciation Thread!

    This is a thread for people to share their love of this amazing moss that many people take for granted! It's great live or dead for many CP medias and even by itself it can be quite beautiful! So share your sphagnum that you grow, solo or with your plants, in situ or in a pot, it doesn't matter really! Also, if you want to get a tentative ID on the species you can ask our resident sphagnum guru, Wireman.

    I'll start us off with some in situ pictures:

    JMN all of this is common sphagnum, just with it's winter coloring. I have some tropical sphagnum from a few different sources that I use as a top dressing for my nepenthes. Was there anything in particular you were hoping to see/obtain?

    Wow!! That Sphagnum with red and yellow tips is mesmerizing. Never seen anything like it.


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Nope, I just want to grow a sphag colony to use as topdressing too Anything beginner level would do(I heard some sphagnum sp.s are harder than others) Thanks!

    I have not had any issues with any of the sphagnums I have but I received nearly all of mine from bits and pieces tagging along with CPs from trades or from plants I bought at the ICPS conference from Jeremiah Harris.
