    That was my first thought, but I had to ask. Maybe in a terrarium with it since the moss will grow out of water as well?

    I used to have some of those in my outdoor lined bog yrs back. That's great that a dormant one is doing ok in such damp conditions. I'll have to try that. Thanks!

    grow a team of burmanni =] this past summer i scattered a bunch of burmanni seeds out on this huge moss flat in my yard outside my room and i forgot about them. i remembered last week and i went to look for some. found HUNDREDS of plants! full seed pods and flowers. even though we have had frosts back home before. harvested what i had time for. they will all die off this winter so maybe ill watch it closer this time.

    D. prolifera could do it, no problem. (Provided the moss doesn't have a disagreeable pH or other counterindicated conditions.) If the moss tolerates it, you could probably do some interesting experiments growing Sarracenia seedlings on it with the 24-hour lighting method. I can see VFT seedlings working on it as well, with periodic transplanting as per the dormancy-skipping technique for Dionaea.
    For a time I grew D. prolifera on a mat of U. gibba in the bottom of my lowland Nep terrarium. I separated them when I cleaned the tank out but once the gibba starts to get thick again I'm sure the prolifera will throw some starts onto it. D. prolifera will grow on top of clean water, until it gets too heavy and the crown gets submerged - they don't like that so much.
