I just did this with a big clump of sphagnum moss that sprouted in one of my Sarracenia pots. It wasn't able to stay damp enough because it was too high above the water level in the tray. I got a wide, flat bowl leftover from take-out food, put a half inch (about 10-15 mm) of carnivorous plant soil in the bottom, then spread out the moss. The soil may not be necessary, but it won't hurt anything. I gave the moss a big drink of rainwater, then put the bowl on my front porch. It gets to experience the cool weather and 3 hours of late morning/early afternoon sun. I expect the bowl to be full to the brim with sphagnum moss by late spring.
