    Here is my mini Moss Garden its about 150sq cm in the corner of the 45lt Bay Window Terrascape.

    The moss came from a hanging basket that once had a small leafed Maiden Hair Fern that I lost but it looks like I have young ferns growing ever where.

    I started pulling them out but I had a change of mind, I left every thing alone to see what happens and, this is the result.

    I guess it's a Cardamine Keith, maybe Cardamine hirsuta?

    I have never seen or heard of Cardamine hirsuta

    I just checked the old hanging basket its that stinking weedy little flowering thing its sends out runners every where and once it starts its practically impossible to get rid of it completely that will take over every thing if I don't keep removing it.

    I only kept it hoping the fern would return later today its a bin job

    If it gets out of control I will find some moss elsewhere either home or the garden shop.

    It looks great but in my opinion that heavy piece of wood is rather distracting.

    Ev :) a little update on my submersed Mnium hornum and other haircap experiment. You might find interesting.

    It still is holding on and growing, very slow but grows and propagates.

    this is the haircap, the new green shoots it all developped submersed..

    and this is the mnium hornum, same story all young green shoots are also developed submersed. This one grows faster than the haircap from above.

    Have you yet tried again?? :)

    DSCF1498.JPG

    also the whole roof has to be removed and some of the baulks and all of the rubber seals has to be renewed ... the old ones are destroyed by the sunlight, which shoud not happen, but it did, because of an production mistake:mad:

    much more work than it looks like...

    busy regards
    Ev
