    Not that cultivating some sphagnum wouldn't be a bad idea. If you had any live sphagnum, I bet you could start to grow it there, and hopefully it would take. The plants I have outside that are in pots with live sphagnum hold up very well to rain and even pretty hard storms. It prevents root disruption pretty well in addition to alleviating splash from the peat.

    This is topped off with the dried material. It is slowly but surely becoming green (not with algae) and alive, just from being outside.

    Pine needles are actually pretty decent, as they acidify as they break down.
