growing moss in terrariums
I bought live moss from the reptile show 2 kinds pillow or cushion and tropical sheet moss about 2 months ago I'm no expert on moss but thats what I was told they were. I have a misting system and also great lighting in the terrarium. Everyone I ask told me different things some people told me that moss needs shade and others told me they need bright lights also for substract to use coco bedding or sand or even soil Some say keep the moss very damp and some say have it covered in water at all times I am clueless on what works.
So far the moss has not spread It is still green not as bright as it was when I first got it I have it growing in coco bedding the humidity is about 85%-95% and the temp is about 80 degrees F. and for the lighting for one month I used 2 20 watt day glo tubes and now I upgrated the lighting to a Tek T5 4 lamp fixture 2 6500K and 2 3000K bulbs.
I here how so many people put moss in their terrariums and it grows and covers the whole thing I dont know if there exaggerating or I'm doing something wrong.
I tried to post this message on the moss forms but I only got 1 respone that persons great advise told me to post a message on this form a real genius and a big help that was If someone can help me I would greatly appreciate it
