    The original plant was a 2" division that was sold as a typical. In its first year of growth, it had poured out of its pot. Last June I moved the mother plant to a 6" pot and took the divisions and cuttings for the tank. It was a full transplant into new media and she didn't suffer any slowdown and has since doubled in size. I don't know what's up with this particular plant, but it's been a blast to grow.

    Few months after it first came


    Day after transplant


    The cuttings for the tank

    What are you lighting this tank with and does it have any ventilation?

    It's open tank and lighted by 2x T8 daylights. Will be upping to 4x T8 daylights soon, I have a ton of them haha. I most semi daily or when the moss tips dry out a bit. I water the crowns overhead as well weekly.

    Took the tank (wow it's a heavy one) to my wife's kindergarten class last Thursday for their plant unit. They loved it!

    That's awfully brave of you to lug a full tank around. Must weigh a ton. That little sandy area looks interesting. What are your plans for it?

    Originally I built the tank for this purpose so I always knew it would be a little weighty haha. What I didn't expect was how fast all the moss grew from the peat and basically cemented the landscape together! So awesome! The sandy area is mostly for show, no plans yet.

    That looks incredible. IMO..All you need is to up your lighting as you said to 2 more T8s and I think with a bit more red in them, they will look spectacular.
