Hey all, some of my pots with better gro sphagnum moss started growing live moss form the spores ( really excited to have life chilean lfs) and I was wondering if any one has pictures of revived better gro sphag ( I know many people have done this succesfully) since I would like to know what shape the strands have.

Will post pics when I have more than a single sphagnum head :lol:

I think this is from New Zealand moss, but I'm not sure if the sphagnum spores came in the moss from NZ or if it got contaminated with local spores somehow. Unfortunately I did not take any pictures of it reviving in the plastic bag. For quite a while I couldn't tell whether it was sphagnum coming back or just algae growing on the sphagnum or some other moss. It grows very slow from spore.
