Just now i went to look at my D. Dielsiana (Wich might be natelensis that i got seeds from mat) and i had 3 in a pot and 2 are making flower stalks one of them stopped growing completly then died and i just left it in there for a month or so maby more and just now i grabbed it with my tweesers and pulled it up and i saw thses little light green sprouts underneath it and at first i thought it was algea but then i realized algea doesnt sprout like that and i pulled it out and ive never seen live sphagnum moss in person but from pictures ive seen this is what it looks like its really small now so i put it in a jar with a little bit of water and closed it so it will be humid its to small to take a picture of but when it gets bigger and i still think its sphagnum moss ill post the picture do you guys think this is possible for the moss to grow under a plant like that where it is very wet but i used peat moss not sphagnum so is it possible or am i looking at some thing else?

its probably carpet/star moss but without pics we cant be sure
if it is one of those try and get rid of it as it can suffocate the plants
