Easy and cute little plant. Vigorous grower. Somthing tells me it might be a good candidate to replace moss in a mount.

I put mine in a basket with sphag , it grows more ON the basket than in it, most of the new growth is out in the air. (I think the moss in the basket keeps a little extra humidity in the root zone but otherwise doesn't do much) It's slowly growing into a ball. Mount is fine if you can keep it wet enough. Great species!
