    Nice Neps! I'm not sure if this has been already answered, but what is all that Sphagnum for?

    I don't know actually... I just like having a lot of it.

    I like it as much as Nepenthes... It's pretty. I'm trying to acquire a few different species and colors so that I can farm a bunch of it, different species. I don't know what I would do with it, maybe sell it or use it in trades. I JUST LIKE IT.

    Regarding culturing live sphagnum: It is also one of the most important and best soil addatives for CP's, so if you can grow it yourself in significant quantities you don't have to buy it, or as much of it (and the stuff can be quite expensive). Live sphagnum also has many properties that make it desirable over dried sphagnum, including antifungal properties, which make it irreplacable for rooting cuttings in, etc. There are a few species of CP's that I have only been able to grow successfully long term in live sphagnum, and in no other way (eg Pinguicula primuliflora), and many other species benefit greatly from growing in it. Speaking for myself personally, I wouldn't consider NOT propagating live sphagnum. Now... I just need to figure out where to grow more of it

    Use it to grow more plants in of course!!
    Selling, trading, and collecting are also good options though I also love the look of it (Who in their right mind wouldn't?)

    The only downside to live Sphag is that voles like to hide in it. That's how we almost lost the entire stock of okees this Spring.
