Need help identifying moss

Postby Ccssrs69 » Wed Jul 13, 2005 10:08 am

I need help identifying this moss, looks to me as some type of pillow moss. This moss was growing on the ground that was covered in pine needles, some of the moss was turned over and white color. I let them sit in spring water for a few days, and lots of cleaning, and surprisingly it turned bright green. I'm hoping that this moss will survive in my terrarium!

I've never had success with temperate moss in my tanks but I live on the east coast with the seasons and that could have some thing to do with it. what part of the country are you in?

Yeah it does look like pillow moss to me especially once I heard where you got it. Good luck with it.

This is a fogger that seems to help with my humidity in the lower part of my tank. Humidity stay around 90% in the lower part of the tank.
