So as I mentioned possibly too many times. Panman was nice enough to sell me some good quality living sphagnum.
The sphagnum arrived all looking pretty green.
I placed it in a tray with some (mostly) desalinated coco coir (68ppm) mixed with perlite and a lot of old sphagnum.
Today the sphagnum doesn't look happy. It was of course unintentionally left to the winds of hurricane Ian, but is perfectly intact
You can see it's clearly not the bright happy green it should be, though it's only been almost a week since it's been in the tray.
I've been keeping it outside in Florida in the shade, misting it thoroughly everyday.
Fertilized it once lightly with 1/4 diluted max sea.
(note the picture has the moss in the sun though it is normally in the shade.)
