    I believe you already found the answer but I'll post it for the other readers. The answer is no. You would not measure the lid. A detail I forgot and the gents from across the pond reminded me of the "gentlemans agreement" not to include the lid in measuring. Though they let me down pretty easy and we all had a laugh about it...

    By the way, the ceph. I mentioned previously is putting out new growth after the rude replanting it was subjected to. It was at 70% humidity, regularly refilled the pitchers and kept it in 1" of water.
    Thank you for your help!

    Nice!!! Glad it's recovering for you. Where did you find that large grain sand. It's caught my eye and wouldn't mind picking some up.

    Finding this sand was a looong adventure. I described some of it and also tried to explain what to look for here: Brand of sphagnum peat moss

    Hope it helps.

    For those that may not want a 50 pound bag or are unable to locate Turface/larger sands you can always search E-bay for "bonsai top dressings". Really only one seller so they are easy to find, you will pay more but sometimes that is the only option. Another option is just checking the online bonsai stores or if you have a local bonsai store try calling them to check.

    The gas/time I put into locating Turface I would have been better off just buying it off of amazon (which I did in the end, never found any locally).

    In my experience no matter the amount of rinsing turface based top dressing (if you want to consider using it for that) develops moss coating just only a little slower than bare soil mix. Otherwise for soil additive, I keep spamming this everywhere I can: if you need turface look up Aquatic Planting Media by Pondcare/Api. Sold on amazon and at walmart!

    P.S. No, I don't work for any of the above companies

    I use turface as a top dressing and only develop moss growth after years of sitting. it deters moss growth for me. and of I see it growing a quick stir of the top dressing restarts that process.

    This plant has the thickest stolon I have seen to date. It's the plant from the photo above that kept growing out of the bottom of the pot. Stolon is thicker than the main root!
