is this were i'm suppose to say bend over and i'll show you?Heather said:So, how will we know you are telling the truth, oh Master of the Moss??
Mark, I think your approach will work as long as you use distilled or r/o water. In making a bog I used peat moss which is just ground up dead sphagnum plus other mosses and whatever else was in the ground that they harvested!Mark said:Not having enough live sphag for the whole pots, I've potted up a couple of plants needing reviving with dead chilean in the bottom and a wreath of the live stuff around the plant itself. We'll see if it'll jump start these that have been just keeping time in sphag-and-box.
Eric, have no clue why you cannot find live sphagnum in NY. There are no carnivorous plant dealers there anymore? The live sphagnum I got came from NY. You should probably find Chilean live for sale from carnivorous plant growers ?????NYEric said:Since I never see any it must be illegal to sell in NYC.
i dunno. it seems that shortly after the goo is seen on the media (typically peat moss), moss starts growing. i'm quick to jump to conclusions, though....smartie2000 said:I think the green gooo is an alga...
Link doesn't work for me. Do you have another way in?Here's another paper that suggests a more fundamental reason for live moss. Nitrogen fixing.
