    Awesome looking moss. It's grown considerably since you started the thread.

    Thanks, man! From the picture in the original post, I took a noticeable chunk, mostly the best pieces, and used them in potting my ceph, so there was even a bit less to start the culture from, and it worked out fine. I just trimmed it earlier today, and put the timmed pieces back in to the ssame culture, but more evenly spaced out. Next time, if it is all growing pretty evenly, I will use the cuttings to make a new culture.

    These two macros are from the moss in my Cephalotus pot:



    This is the moss culture before (top) and after (bottom):


    Clouds and live sphagnum (The fogger had been turned on seconds prior to taking this pic which is why the clouds are only on half of the tray. I think it looks cool.):


    Drosera burmannii "Humpty Doo" showing remarkably fast growth (it also got fed for the first time today which should speed things up even more):

    the sundews are looking awesome. What medium do you use for the sphagnum, I'm thinking about starting my own culture. Thanks.

    Thanks! Burmannii is growing so quickly. For my sphagnum, I don't use any media. I grow it by itself. Put it in a tray you that allows it to cover the entire bottom with an inch or two of live sphag to prevent drying out. I keep the water level right under the moss heads, when the culture is starting up.

    It appears that this will be easier than I thought, thanks.

    Another question where did you get your starter moss, if you're allowed to say, thanks.

    As long as you keep it from ever drying out, and start with a clean culture (no bacteria growth, no algae, and no fungus) you'll be good to go. Live sphag does a good job of keeping itself clean from those things once you have it growing well as an established colony. It's mostly a problem when you receive a bag of moss that also has a bunch of other plant matter and dead bugs in it. Those rot much more easily.

    I got mine on ebay. Someone here was saying that the seller I got mine from sent him a bad batch a while back, but mine came in great condition. Lots of live green sphag, very little dead sphag, and almost no other plant matter in there aside from a few little weeds that sprout and are easily picked out. Stuff loves to hitchhike in live sphag since it's such a great growing media, and protects small plants from rot.
