I need some help here please. Is anyone here growing sphagnum moss successfully? I did some searching on the net and came up with mixed results/info.
I finished up my new viv and placed some frog moss (sphagnum moss I think) on the viv floor.
The frog moss is turning brown. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Too much water or not enough light??? Here is a pic. Any info,help and/or web links would be much appreciated. Thanks!!!!!!!
PS if I've made a mistake on the classification of this moss please correct me. The original package was from Exo Terra Frog Moss.
PPS Almost forgot. I am using a Reptiglow 5.0 UV (tropical bulb). Its rated at 13watts. But since its a CFL the 13watts = about 60watts incandescent. I just ordered a 26watt (100watts incandescent).
* I also read that minerals in water can turn moss brown and also kill them. Ive been using Nestle water which has minerals in it. Im gonna switch.
