Friggin great links Nevermore. The German page made me want to run to the nearest jungle and collect mosses for a terrarium. Bookmarked. Waiting for a day where I ll be working with them. Sorry for spamming the thread.

I received my order in the mail yesterday. It was greener then I thought it would be, since it took 14 days to get here. I put it on my driftwood, lets see how good it grows.

well i have had mine in my tank for awhile now. Not much growth and doesn't look like the picture, at least not yet. I have it partially emerbed. I have part of my driftwood that is barely emerged, and I put that on the tip in hopes that it will drap down over the driftwood.

I got an order of this from the same seller almost 3 months ago. For 2-3 weeks it did absolutley nothing completely submerged in my high-light, high tech tank. About a month in it finally started developing very small new sprouts that look almost like a stringy kind of moss. Looked nothing at all like the emersed form that the palnt came in. Since then it has done very little growing, if any. My final verdict for this plant is that it is not worth it if you plan on growing it submersed. It would probably look great growing emersed on a branchy driftwood sticking out of an open top tank.

That sucks, 1/2 mine was dead. From the pic he shows of this stuff, I was excited to get it.

BTW, I also tried some of the "Star Moss". After struggling with it for the same 3 months I can confidently say that Star Moss is not a true aquatic moss and is not meant to be grown submerged.

Hopefully it takes a toll on his credibility. Hobbyists won't buy from him.
