This will be my official photo thread. (Date, camera noted):

Attempts at Drosera capensis "All Red" leaf cuttings. Out of 6 leaves, 5 produced successful clones. (10-03-2014, iPhone 5S)

Just noticed a spike on my Phalaenopsis orchid! So exciting! It's my first one! (10-06-2014, iPhone 5S)

I like how you top-dress some plants with live sphagnum! The red species looks especially good! :D

I love the live sphagnum too! Is it difficult to keep alive as a top dressing? I recently bought some, and am keeping it in a clear plastic food container. When I take a little out and put it on some wet LFSM, it just shrivels up.

Great photos!

It's really not difficult at all. I just spray them once in the morning and once at night.
I am going to do a sale soon on the red sphagnum since they are overtaking my plants.

A quick spray will do, just enough to keep the top moist until the next soaking. Any extra water goes down into the soil for the actual plants themselves. This prevents me from over-watering.
Also, they are indoors so I don't have to worry about the sun drying them out.

I also have dishes of sphagnum, which are just on a substrate that gets flooded with distilled water weekly.
