I have lfsm and want to chop it all up to make it into small pieces and use it as a potting mix for some droseras and cephs I bought yesterday.
I heard you can do that with a blender so I asked my mum if I can use it and when I tried it, all the lfsm went to the side of the blender and went away from the blade! So I couldn't do it.
Please somebody tell me how to do it with a blender or if there is any other way to make the potting mix with lfsm by making them into small pieces.

Thanks

I came across this thread whilst searching chopped Sphagnum moss. I have been trying this recently and have found the easiest method for me is to put the moss into a blender and add plenty of water. This way the moss will stay in suspension in the water, rather than sticking to the walls of the blender. I pulse the blender and when the moss it at the desired coarseness, I poor it through a fine strainer to remove the water - water can be further removed by gently squeezing the moss.
