    Hey guys I've been trying to grow live sphagnum from the dead stuff for a couple of months and i'm not sure if I've done it. I'll let you decide:



    It's either the real stuff or algae let me know what you think

    Looks like algae to me.

    If you want to grow spaghnum dont put it on soil, I have found out that it is really bad.
    Put it in a glassjar or a plastc container,just put the spaghunm in and water a little. always keep the humidity in the container very high.
    I did this and its growing great.
    Need all the experience I can get...

    I'm not entirely convinced that it is algae, though the picture is inconclusive. I have found that the dried LFS naturally became live after several months.

    It could be sphagnum. At first the dead stalks turn greenish, and if it's growing then little moss sprouts come out of the top.
    If it's not growing, it'll turn into slime in about two to three months' time.
