I have not posted my sequence as I wanted to make a single big post. I present to you, growth from february to september!!




The tray with the big moss seems to not overgrow, but it is because I get some moss out of it for the nursery sales, and even so, you may not even notice that detail!

Well, my sphagnum is gaining red coloration, not as the first months when it was really green, and as I see it, the moss needs very high light levels with low Tº to get red, as it lived at 12000ft high

At what stage do you think would be good to take more cuttings to sow? My last batch from months ago ended up dying thanks to an unfortunate event and I'm trying again. Though this time I only have 3 sprigs. They're very small right now. But since its winter and its not very hot anymore, their growth seems to be doing very well.

Using as refference my photos in the post I made, I would say that when you see something as in the second photo, when green clumps are already visible you may take a little bit from the center of them.
Also, since my greenhouse is just at the side of a house, water enters through te gray wall, and that has made the moss I have not require any watering, but I saw that it makes it be in a complete dampness and with a water layer all the time, it is bad for the moss, it should not have it more than 2 days in a row.
At this point I have been taking cuttings big enough to fill 2 or 3 a #8,5 pots (my cutting selling size) about every 2 months, it has not had any effect at all.
