I neglected some red sphagnum moss since they arrived around March this year. They were in bright shade the whole time, lost most of the red and became etiolated. :blush:

The good thing is, from two containers of sphagnum grass...I have now 6 containers of cuttings! Hope they grow well and get back into the short and squat puffy red heads!!! :banana2:

Some species seem to do this in less than full sun, others maintain the red coloration no matter what. Not something I fully understand yet.
