Hello,

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 )

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.

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.

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