    The first clump is definitely sphagnum. The other one is probably some other moss growing on the sphagnum.
    Contgratulations, soon you'll have more than you'll ever need. :)

    thx for the confirmation,
    right now it's sitting in a pot of peat/perlite
    should that be fine or would it be best to put
    it in it's own container like tyfone said?

    It depends on what you want to do with it. It will cover the medium on any pot of CPs you choose to put it on. But, if you want to raise it just to have more sphagnum, I would suggest that you get some dried long fiber sphagnum, line a large undrained container with it, place your growing sphagnum in the dried stuff, and then fill the container with water up to the level of the sphagnum. Put it outside in good sun or inside under your lights. It'll grow over the entire surface eventually and you can divide it into other containers. I'm filling my Nep tanks with sphagnum in this manner.

    if I have this in my terrarium is it worth opening the lid or keeping it shut. The water is at the same level as the sphagnum is that what you meant? Here's a pic of the chamber:



    Open? Closed?
