    Well mine is in a tank and I just pour water into the tank. Not enough that the nep pots sit in water but enough for the moss to be almost covered.

    PAK,

    Nice truncata! And like the others, I love the live sphagnum! I'm kind of trying to get live sphagnum growing in all my nep pots, but have had mixed success. Right now I'm trying to grow a bunch in a clear plastic container with a lid. It seems to be really taking off, so I may be onto a good way to get a bunch quickly.

    PAK,

    As with you I find that I get loads of LFS growth from what appears dead.

    Mine is purchased form a local garden centre in sealed packets. The LFS is brown and moist. However, it starts to grow within a week or so and by 2 months what ever pot I have used it in will have a full covering of nice green moss.

    Conditions?

    Glasshouse, 50% shade cloth, misting comes on for 1-3 minutes every hour during daylight hours, etc.

    I think an important fact is actually moisture from below. I.e. I find it grows better in larger pots. Larger pots have more media and therefore better moisture retention and stability.

    With PAK lining her tanks with the moss it would be constantly in a high moisture environment with little or no dry periods (what I feel causes poor or no growth given all other conditions being ideal).

    Aaron.

    what is this shade cloth you speak of?

    during summer i am planning on putting a little nursery in my back yard, the top was going to be that criss cross wood like people use for fences or stuff, its some shade some light, the spot where im gona put it in gets sunlight from dawn till almost dusk

    it would bring fire to my plants but like i said i am planning on putting that criss cross wood on the top so its half shade half sun , somewhat, and my parents are going to let the bugamvilia vine over that,

    would that criss-cross would be good? im not 100% sure what its called, my dad said it but its some weird name, it has like diamond shaped holes
