    yes.... it can vary quite a bit actually. In addition to that is the obvious difference in the relationship of maturity to water levels. But that is more a common sense relationship. Older cultures can deal with much lower levels.

    wow mate. very very nice. I never had any of my sphagnum make any spore bearing structures. I think a variation between summer/winter temperatures is required to boost the plants into spore production.

    Some years back, I was growing tanks of various sphagnum species; and the sporophytic phase seemed to been simply related to age, a brief period of dryness and its photo-period . . .

    Two of the three species I currently grow appear to dislike an extremely high water level - almost refusing to grow when completely saturated. Both of these originated from NC - one being a very small species and another being quite large. Otoh, local LFS originating from Pine Barrens does very well with a high water level.

    As in days or hours? What is left when the spores are explosively distributed?

    Very nice AV!
    I have the same thing with some of my moss.
    recognized it easy from my day's of mushroom growing.
    I know it's not the same thing as a mushroom, but same concept right?

    Of those I found and photographed yesterday, I only saw one today (quick glance)... I assume the pseudopodium just sort of blends into the background.

    Maybe a day or two at most I would guess...
    David... any idea?

    Oh now that is a good pic Adam!

    Is yours indoors or out?.... Mine is out

    Good to know BigB. Those are variables that do not change in my setup and I might have to incorporate them in the future.
