Just to share with everyone some Sphagnum species that I have cultivated.
They are a good companion for Nepenthes and Terrariums.

They are great species and grow well in our local climate.
They have acclimatise. These species grow fast too.

I have attached photos for you to see: ( in a growing mini terrarium example and also how their Sphagnum moss head look like individually under comparison )

From left to right:

Sphagnum papillosum, one of the sub sp from of the sub-generic section to which also belong the Sphagnum magellanicum and the Sphagnum palustre.
Characterized by very large and robust plants with high hydrophilic capacity.


Example of growing in mini glass terrarium

Sphagnum quinquefarium, a more green colour, a more erect structure, a more orderly arrangement of branches and leaves.
It can form dense meadows if kept under direct sunlight, or diffused and bulky meadows if kept in the shade.

Example of growing in mini glass terrarium

Sphagnum subsecundum, a medium-small size Sphagnum species, capable of very rapid growth, but particularly demanding in terms of temperature and light.
