Step 3: Grow!

Spread It on a rock or tree in a place the moss would grow. Wait a month and check back.Dont Forget About It!  I hope It works for everyone, and tell me what you are using it for!
This is NOT spaghnum, the organism also known as peatmoss. <br>Do not use this for your orchids or carnivorous plants. <br> <br>RRPavert
<p>why not? </p>
<p>Completely different moss species avarafaeli. Actual peat moss (Spaghnum species) are used mostly as a filler (Think potting for orchids) that holds some extra water but hardly holds any nutrition. Or to accompany carnivorous plants as an actual growing medium of accompanying plant. The species in the picture is likely a species that prefers a more dry environment and will not be suited for the same things as Spaghnum moss. It's just not the right material...</p><p>Dealing with orchids/carnivorous plants? This is what you are looking for: <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphagnum" rel="nofollow"> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphagnum</a></p>
<p>This is cool. Going to try it when things warm up.</p>
<p>Helpful hint: Reword the title to something without the word &quot;<strong>peat.</strong>&quot;</p><p>Love the simplicity of this one, it's easy!</p>
Did your moss grow any mould? I am cultivating moss on little stones atm and it is furry.
Thanks! <br>great idea, now that I'm working on bonsais !
So it takes a month for the moss to fully colonize? No watering or anything?
No, if its in a dry area you can spray it with some water.
Just try to keep it moist. <br>
There are many different genus and species of mosses.The moss you are using is not peat moss. Peat moss is weakly decomposed moss, usually mosses of the genus Sphagnum. I'm glad that you are having good luck with the wonderful world of Bryophytes.
Thanks I was a little aprehensive of classifying it because I was not sure.
