This temperate moss that you posted will do best in the long run if it is outdoors in an area that has true winters, but it will survive and grow for several seasons in a subtropical/tropical climate before it degrades.
    Thanks for that, I'll give it a go!

    I've never had experience with that brand. From the sound of it, it sounds like it could grow. The only thing I know is that you'll have to try it yourself. Everything is different, conditions, temperatures, etc. What worked for one person might not work for another. Good luck and most importantly, have fun.

    Wait, so it is best to be waterlogged? I always thought that it would drown because the lack of oxygen will cause alcohol fermentation, therefore killing the plant. I guess I have to revisit the old Biology books again.

    Sphagnum moss

    I have never purchased live sphagnum moss. What I have found is that dried long fiber sphagnum moss from garden centers will eventually start growing.

    A terrarium of cps panted using the dried moss starts to grow in a couple of months. This can provide a good source of live moss for other plants.



    The higher the water level the better. This moss was allowed to dry a bit. It will eventually come back.

    Careful where you crawl, it might be a trap!
