Yes, perhaps "mix" was not used in the true meaning of the word.
Maybe "variety pack" would have been more fitting for the description.
Either way, it keeps me on the safer side of sane, not having to ID them all by myself with an ID chart and a microscope plucked from me pocket.
Do these moss species being offered hold any interest for you Fred?
I would be curious to see how well some of these species perform growth-wise in some of the different grow areas.
Plus having the species name for each moss sample is something novel here - the most specific I've gotten with labelling Sphagnum in the past, was in noting whether the moss was from Chile or New Zealand, but still clueless as to any specific species names.
I'm always interested in Bryophytes Doug. I helped a friend of mine do a survey of a sphagnum raft in Scotland in the 70s. He was a wiz with a pocket microscope identifying the sphagnum species. It's amazing just how many species you can find in a 10 cm square..
We were actually looking at the relationship of the Sphagnum and Water Beetles on a SSSI.
The rafts are not something you should go on on your own. He did that and went through only stopping full immersion by throwing his arms out. Luckily he had his dog with him and she helped pull him out. He was a very lucky laddie. It's not easy to resurface when you're wearing waders.
Just after that I had the request to accompany him.
