It has been said that you can treat the humic acid buildup by pressing a paper towel to the moss and leaving it there, but I have never done it.
Hmmm, that's weird, that entire pot is just LFSM. I guess humic acid can still build up anyways? Is it going to be ok from it being brown? Like it's not dead, right, just brown? haha

Is there anything I should be doing to take care of the LFSM better? I'd love to grow a bunch of it.
Spray it regularly with maxsea, and it will grow like crazy, burying your plants, so you will never see them again. Okay, I exaggerate a bit but not as much as you might think.
No wonder it's growing like crazy, I mist my sundews with Maxsea every once in a while and it gets over the LFSM!

This is a shallow tray with only sphagnum moss in it. The filiformis is from a leaf that broke and I cut it in sections and stuck in the moss. The tray is probably less than 3” tall.
Can I just pluck out the moss and put it in its own tray with some LFSM and grow it that way? How much light should I be giving them so they stay just green?
