    I just wanted to find out how often one should water a nep if it grows in a mix composed mainly of sphagnum moss. The plant is growing outside and it gets indirect sun for 4 hours and the temperature goes up to 85 F during the day??

    I know that as soon as the top sphagnum looks a bit dryish, it is an indicator that more water is needed. But i found even though the sphagnum on top is dry the one at the bottom of the pot isn't. As you may all know, excess watering can cause root rot.

    thanks

    I water mine every three days. Its in a 8 inch pot, so the top of the soil will be bone dry, but if you would burrow your finger down into the LFS there is moisture.
