Bastmeijer said me i should probe the growing on live moss... really I was growing on live moss many time ago. I use it to root the rhizome and get a lot of plants.
I got a big amount of seedling of Sri-lanka from crypts of this way.
Two month ago I divided the rhizome of some pontederiifolia in several parts and putted on a moss bed and then covered.
Some weeks ago, the fist littles leaves are coming up...
At the moment this method goes good for rooting, so i want test it with a long term culture. This week i potted some seedling of spiralis and balansae (2 of that easy crypts which i have many problem with emersed culture) on live moss as soil. I potted a sensitive crypt like longicauda too, to see the results about this sensitive crypts with soil mix...
Bastmaijer told me that is a common practice from Japan... so I searched info in the net.... i found some interesting pics i want to share with you.
Really is not live moss... seems died spahgnum moss. It´s a cordata var. zonata.
This cryptocoryne sp. seems grow a mixture of sphagnum moss and tree leaf litter
Any experience, opinion or something?
