    I would keep it moist and prevent the moss from having direct contact with the plant. I take it that the compost is peat-based below it? If not, just keep the sphagnum moss from drying out . . .
    yes there is peat, perlite and sand under the sphagnum moss. ill try my best from over watering my plant and thank you all for the great adice.

    It is best to keep the soil damp, not wet.

    It's a little difficult to be certain from the photo but is it not a new leaf forming with dark colouration? If so, it is darker from the rest of the growth due to increased light levels. I find that new growth is darker in colour when under good light and the existing growth gets darker but over time.

    is the new growth that color because it might be dieing? like i said earlyer this is a new plant i just got it not that long ago. i have it under 4 T8 grow lights about 4-6 in away. what im worried about is that its new growth that is dieing for some reason.

    There may be the odd chance that you're cooking the Cephalotus and that's the reason for the leaves dying. It's one thing to have an adult plant 4-6 inches from 4 T8 bulbs -- which can throw off a bit of heat -- and quite another for one so young. It may simply be dessication . .
