    Hi all,

    I just purchased some riccardia chamedryfolia and obviously this stuff is super expensive. It's the second time i've purchased it, the first time I killed it. Is there anyway to propagate it emersed? I'd love to be able to keep a backup supply of it, if there is what's the best way to do it.

    Thanks,
    James

    Apparently it is a terrestrial moss!

    Yes it's easy to kill it esp if you dose glut.

    Was overdosing glut with double doses for a month without any issues on Ricardia. Now I stopped dosing and haven't noticed any difference in growth rate.
