    Fill a 10x20 greenhouse flat to 1-2" deep with wet peat or long fiber sphagnum.

    Run a handful of live sphagnum moss through a food processor briefly to chop it into small segments, then seed the greenhouse flat with it.

    Cover with a humidity dome, and keep under grow lights.

    Each small piece of live sphagnum will continue to grow, and the surface will soon be covered with a crop of live sphagnum moss.

    I tried that, except I didnt chop it up. I just cut it up and mixed it with the soil... works fine [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.
