    Thanks for the feedback so far everyone!

    @hcarlton- they're actually both broad leaf. I neglected to put "broad leaf" in the first pic but the smaller one by itself was a seedling in the pot next to the 2 larger ones. When I ordered them from the vendor they arrived all in one pot so I split them up.

    Any advice on how I should continue to grow the moss? Just leave it as is?

    Odd, considering it matches perfectly the capensis 'Albino' plants I have, which are a typical leaf form, and looks nothing like your other broadleaf plants. As for the sphag, leaving it as it is will let it grow just fine.
    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.

    Did you know that your D. adelae has U. livida growing in it? (the white flowers)

    Yes. It is something I'm quite bitter about lol. The pot arrived infested with it. Don't get me wrong it looks very pretty but I prefer my utrics to be in their own separate pot. I'll never win that battle now.

    Looks more like U. bisquamata than U. livida to me.

    Yeah I've been comparing photos and it seems like U. bisquamata. Would also make sense as I was reading the savage garden and Mr D'amato mentions it as being a pest in their greenhouses...and that also happens to be the company I bought the D adelae from haha.

    Hey thanks a lot! That means a lot to me since I'm still relatively new at this.

    I've changed it around a bit since my original pic and will post an updated pic soon. Here is a link to a web page I found that details how to build a grow rack cheaply. If you were to buy one of these premade it will cost you $400-600. If you buy a wire rack and then a bunch of shop lights and appropriate lighting you can do the whole thing at a fraction of that cost depending on the sales you find. I also love grow racks because of the added space it affords you. Right now I use 1 shelf for my main collection, another shelf for other tropical plants, and another shelf for cuttings and other propagation methods, etc.

    Hope this helps! I also don't use any fans or humidifiers. The humidity from the water tray is plenty for my collection.
