Good morning, people of terraforums.
I have a theory that I will most likely test soon, but I would like to discuss it here first. This March, when I repotted my deathbox vft's, I found that the long fiber sphagnum that they were originally planted in had decayed to the point of looking like peat. The only part of the moss that had not decayed were the little round growth tips. They had been in there for about a year. Do you believe that it would be possible to create a sort of "synthetic peat" by keeping moist lfs in a container for an extended amount of time and allowing it to break down? If I recall correctly, that's how peat is formed naturally. Any advice, theoretical or otherwise, is greatly appreciated.
