Moss terrium advice

michael1846(6)June 21, 2012

Help in starting a moss,lichen terrium with ball moss(common air plant in Floridia ) got the ball moss in florda but is it ok to put moss and lichen together with the moss and ball moss and if I can get it is it ok to put liverwart in with them what fertilizer can I mix with water for them so they grow faster I heard some fertilizer kills moss and all the moss has spores how fast will the moss,moss spores grow if lichen grows fast enough I want to put bark on the back of the taink so the lichen grows up or is that a bad idea please give me advice I really want this to grow fast and green agen are these things even possible and can I mix mosses from different states I'm sorry for all the quesions thanks

I'd suggest looking at some of the "Vivarium" forums
for advice on terrariums. I've found mosses and lichens difficult to grow in those situations though I only keep one 150 gallon terrarium It mostly holds flowering plants .
just google that name and you'll get tons of choices!!! gary
