With my growing interest in epiphytic Utrics, i figured it might be a good time to start scaring up some more live Sphagnum mosses, to be used in potting media and as a topdressing on pots.
I found some unknown dried Sphagnum, then gathered up some other dried Sphagnum from Chile, and then rustled up some dried Sphagnum in bags sent to me by a scientist in Quebec, Canada, from almost a decade earlier, which contained two types of red colored Sphagnum moss - one is rusty brown in color now, while the other sample is brighter red in color at this stage.
It takes about 3 months for the live moss to begin growing again, so should have a better idea how successful this is around next March or April, of next year.
Wish me luck!
