Vern wrote:If you grow your sphagnum in a separate container, do you just cut sections (top, bottom, all the layers?) to dress your CN plants? Or do you snip off the tops and let them dry?I don't use sphagnum as a top dressing for my plants. But I believe that as long as you put the green parts of the sphagnum on a surface where they stay moist, they will grow.

I have a huge tube that basically is the water tray for my plants and would like to have the plant between my plants.I'm actually trying that right now. I had just separated some seeding sundews and placed them on top of some springs from my terrarium into a jar and the springs that I had only cut in half are starting to show new growth after about month, without any bottom layer of sand/perlite/peat/dried sphagnum. After seeing that I plucked a few springs and cut them up and put them in an old glass cup I had and put some plastic wrap over the top. I've had them in there with distilled water for about 2 weeks now and some of it is still green, though I think most of my troubles is that I cut them too small, so I'm not too sure of the status of the smaller pieces. I just dropped a whole spring into the cup today to see if that will take off any better. The only thing I can really say is if they're dead I wouldn't think the water level would go down so quickly. So I can only hope that the larger pieces that I cut are actually live.
