Sphagnum moss likes humidity. Keep sphagnum moss wet and very humid.
Sphagnum doesn't like tons of light. It's very easy to burn. Mine grows very well in a shaded location in my heli tank. The drier you keep them, the less light and heat they can handle.
Keep temps low. Sphagnum doesn't like the heat.
Hope this helps! I'm not a Sphagnum expert, so take my advice with a grain of salt.
