    I know there are different species but are thye different colors? I found some red sphagnum when I was out recently but wanted to know if it would stay red or would turn green in spring.

    yep. Sometimes the same species has many color variations. If you don't give it what it wants (sun, I don't know what else,) it will turn green (like mine :P)

    Mine's bright yellow with some green. Go figure. I wonder if there is a red or blue type.

    there are red ones but not blue ones. If you have noticed blue is kind of rare in nature (in life that is). especially if the color is from pigments... sure, the morpho butterfly is blue but it's because of how the light is refracted by the wing scales.

    I have green and now red. I had to take an inch square so I can take a picture (hopefully soon) to share with everyone here.

    before they turned green, I had green, red, and brown. I'm pretty sure they were all diff. species since they look so different (besides the color)
