Hi all,
I imagine its used to being quite dry.Can it tolerate wet conditions ok?
Yes it wasn't to go in the filter, I have it sticking on a bamboo cane in one of the orchid pots in the bathroom. It doesn't have any roots so it needs a humid atmosphere, but it doesn't like getting wet (I mist it). I started with one strand, but over about 5 years it has built up.

There used to be a huge "pillow" of it in the "Princess of Wales" glasshouse at Kew, hanging of the branch above the pond in the humid tropics section (last time I was there the branch had gone). I should have a picture somewhere.

cheers Darrel

Looks like an interesting plant.
Might be a nice one for riparium folks.
I can imagine it hanging above there tanks to make there displays even taller.

Tank is way over grown now and in need of a large trim! Might take a full tank shot later on, for now one of the nice reds in it, which have been separated for selective breeding, to try and better the colours.

Thanks George :)

Paul I just perform a 60% water change every two weeks, this much cause I only have cherries in there and they don't really care. On the other nano its a different story due to the species in there.

I have been dosing some micro and macro recently to see if there is any benefit and things just went crazy on me lol the mosses grew much faster. I might revert back to no dosing as I do prefer it to be less of a pain to maintain.
