They can bloom on amazingly small plants. And they have until next spring to do some growing before it's bloom time.

Mine are quite small so there is not much to report. They are still alive.

took poli outside for a dunk in kelpak.

I thought this plant was going to flop around like a limp weed.

It doesnt, it just stands up like it was grown that way

replaced the emergency use only lowes moss with 5A long strand. The lowes looks good for about a week then it looks and feels like mud. Many will not find 5A cheap or readily available these days. But it is the project plant




thanks for looking

I haven't popped for 5A, but I use 4A (SpagMoss Supreme) for everything that goes into sphagnum. It lasts so much better than cheaper types, and when it gets old, it just loses the "fuzz" part and still has firm fibers that give good drainage (just don't hold as much water, not necessarily a bad thing)

This is what you're looking for. https://www.amazon.com/besgrow-Zeala...0C25R3UG&psc=1
And it looks like it's scarce at the moment... you want the Supreme grade, and 500 g or 1 kg are good sizes. Good luck., happy hunting.
If you can't find it, Sunset Valley Orchids is selling 3A, still decent.

The Besgrow Spagmoss is imported into the US by Acadian Supply in Suwanee, GA. There's something funky about their website, may have been hacked... my AV goes nuts when I try to access it. But if you google it, there, also a phone number... might be a way of finding out who actually has it, or if they will sell a retail quantity (they are wholesalers)
