Got it sitting on some dried sphagnum, partially sitting in water.
Hopefully I can get a nice pillow goin in the next coming months

It creates more places for the moss to grow new heads.I split all the pieces in half already. They’re not 1 inch exactly but close enough. I got two types one is super thick and stubby, the other is long and stringy. I split up the stringy stuff a bit more.

Also like to give a fine amount of fertilizer sparingly every few weeks or so to help it grow but also prevent the heads from burning (Tips will go dark and look burnt)Moss without fertilizer: grows aprox 1-2 inches per month.

Sarr) all seem to respond favorably. I fill the pitchers as well on the Sarr/Ceph and they have nice gains. That said though, I would fill the pitchers of Sarrs with 1/4. I burned out the pitchers at the water line when filling with 1/2 so I'd probably do 1/4 in general to make that easier. Thankfully the growing season is really just starting so I'll be able to cut my loss. Had a rocky start this year with some pests and the burning but I did 1/4 and they seem to be doing fine now. I notice my pinguicula make decent moves after being fed as well. I fertilize at night and I'm usually seeing some kind of changes in them within a couple of days.Apollyon wrote:I use 1/2 when I'm spraying my CPsJust a question, how is 1/2 strength Maxsea on your CPs? Does it increase growth better than 1/4 strength?

Always dilute Maxsea to 1/4 teaspoon per gallon to be safe.I always dilute MaxSea to 1/4 strength. I was just curious if people were successful using it at stronger dosages. The general consensus is "no".
