I have a GIANT sphagnum bog down the street from my house, and was wondering if I can use this live sphagnum for my planting mix whenever peat or sphagnum is called for? Also, I see in everyone's pics they have gorgeous moss growing in the pots with their CP's.. How in the world do you get this stuff to grow like that!?!? Once I've picked it, I've never been able to keep it alive.
I happen to have a pic of the sphagnum found in the bog. My camera rarely leaves my hands, if you haven't noticed.
