    I have a few questions about moss

    I have a few questions about moss?

    My other concern is that certain mosses are poisonous to CP's, especially when they break down. They contain too many nutrients and kill the plants. I could be wrong about your type, as I am no moss expert by far, but want to give you a heads up so you may look into it further and not see your nice collection dwindle

    here is a link.

    In my experience, the moss is more of a symptom than a cause..the moss shows up when there are nutrients in the soil or the soil starts to decay, not the other way around.
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    I would take it out because eventually it might get slimy and gross.... and its bad for seeds/seedlings.

    Well..if you are the one that put the moss there in the first place, no, you can leave it.

    The main worry is peat based soils that start growing a carpet of moss on their own....that usually means that the soil has too many nutrients or is starting to break down.
