I've been watching this little division of moss in my ghetto highland setup, and something I never expected happened...

Now begs the question what do I do for spore collection?
Part of is thinking 1020 with a dome full of peat.

I like it! I haven't gotten any of my sphagnum to spore like that.

Spore launched!

Now the onto the next problem: algae. I do not know of a way to supress the algae without potentionally killing off the moss spores :(
