live sphagnum moss

by colby100 » Sat Oct 22, 2011 6:24 pm

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
Be polite
Be efficient
