I want to order some Live Sphagnum moss from FTS but I need to know how to care for it and keep it growing. ANY tips on how to grow are appreciated! :D

Thanks Grey! I haven't even got it yet, so I don't need the tips, I just would like to know because I plan to get it soon.

I sorta want to wait till they get cephs in stock so I don't have to pay to ship each :(.

Can't you grow it from the dry stuff too? I believe there are dry spores or something along those lines. I have had new growth spring up in a glass vase that I used for some Purple Pitchers (planted the plants down in the bottom of the clear glass vase). It worked well! The moss started to grow up the insides of the vase too. Very interesting, I thought. :) Can anyone else verify this method?

I keep my plants in a terrarium, and when I making my terrarium a couple months ago I put dead LFS as a top dressing, and a few weeks ago I noticed some sphagnum moss growing in the corners of my terrarium, there still small but there's quite a few of them. :mrgreen:
