    22-27C @ day and 9-13.5C at night. I just water my Neps once a week, since the media is quite moist in the terrarium.

    Would I have to water the moss every day? And also, I currently have a blue/red grow light which is sitting about 15-18 inched from the pots. I will be replacing that with a T5HO fixture. I am just worried if the light would be too much for the mosses. I run the lights from 6AM to 8:10 PM
    hard to tell without knowing the exact perimeters we are working with. normally, sphagnum can take high lighting conditions--but its usually the heat that gets to them. if it's too hot, the fronds will stress out. however, if you can keep humidity and temps at a constant and favorable level, id expect no problems with growing moss in a vertical fashion. i would give them a initial thorough spray to get them situated, and afterwards, you probably would never have to spray them again.

    im scared of blasting it with too much light though. overhead lighting is dimmed significantly, but i can see the highest plant bleaching out a bit as a stress response, maybe when it turns solid green, i'll give it a shot again. i have overhead led lighting, and two led spot light projections for the plants in less favorable positions.

    thanks. I'm getting pitcher production on some of the other plants so will photograph those soon.

    An update no nice pictures. Just phone photos. 5 of 7 plants are in process of inflating some pitchers. 2 still remain fussy. Interestingly enough, the one that had no root system is not only recovering, but is trying to produce pitchers! Really pleased with the overall progress.

    It's already filling in very nicely. The moss has already made it look much more full.
