Default growing live sphagnum moss

a plain sheet of plastic laid over a shallow polystyrene box, thin layer of cocopeat top up with cuttings of tip live sphagnum moss. Left in the open shaded by some trees. 2 months later noted growth became compact and some have overgrown on the left. Now i can have endless supply - take tip cuttings and spread over my neps pots

Wow... Oddly enough, it doesn't look like live sphag from where I'm sitting.. Looks like Japanese roses (portulaca) instead...

if i prepare another box, replant all the tip cuttings, 2-3 months later i will be able to add extra 2 boxes, that will be 4 in total. I can keep on multiplying if i don't use them

Upon closer look, you will see it's a SM, just different species...

This is what I have originated from Borneo


These SM below originated from Peninsular Malaysia (3 types)






Hope Robert won't mind me doing this... Thanks.

can the LSM condition can be the indicator to the moisture level in the potting media? ie i wonder if the LSM is fresh and green the moisture level is high and while they are yellowish, it means time to water the plants?
