This might be in the wrong section of the forum, sorry :) So one day I was looking at a pot of baby vfts that I set up a humidity dome for and I noticed that there was a green moss growing in a corner of the pot (it is not sphagnum). I let it grow because it did not seem to be affecting the plants and it looked kind of nice as well. Now I'm debating whether or not I should get rid of the moss, just in case. Any suggestions?

I let it grow.
Over time it can make an impenetrable matt, but it should be fine, as long as you remove it every few years.

Like Daniel_G said, it looks really good when it's grown out. My Cephalotus is beginning to develop a moss bed, and it really is a nice backdrop. Try it and see how it goes. Trim it if you don't like it.
