    Are you positive on that sphagnum ID? It doesn't look too sphaggy to me :/ Though, I have been known to be wrong once every leap year or so.

    positive, no. I thought it was the icky stuff too, but the more I look at it it looks how mine looked early. It will be much more obvious whatever it is in a few weeks.

    When some sphag randomly sprouted for me, as I recall, it was thin strand like and suspiciously like other stuff.

    Hey folks here's a quick update re: the status of my plants. I've made a few additions to my collection and they're adjusting nicely. I've been in the hobby since April of 2014 and as you can see I have definitely been bitten by the carnivorous plant bug...Pun very much intended. As always I hope you enjoy and please feel free to offer any advice or suggestions.

    Sphagnum Moss Culture by RadagastCP, on Flickr I'm now 99.99% certain that I've successfully cultured sphagnum moss. It was unclear at first but I really now think it is sphagnum and the technique worked.

    Thanks for looking!

    Yes, it is. Sphagnum does not have the bushy growth points we so often see when it's really young. When it first sprouts, it's stringy and looks kind of like the weedier moss types.
    Also, it appears you have the capensis/capensis "broadleaf" pic labels reversed.
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Well I apologize. I have never seen anything like that called sphagnum. my newly cultured sphag has alwaus looked like "mature sphagnum" so I jumped to conclusions
