Good/Bad live moss

Recommended Posts

so obviously lfs live or dead is good for most cp. But what are some bad mosses?

I found this club-moss looking guy in one of my pots. he grows pretty fast so i see him potentially overgrowing plants if hes not kept incheck but are there any other problems with him?

I also have a drosera spatulata in a pot near my nepenthes. what would happen if the seeds get in the nepenthes pots? would they act as a ground cover or harm the plants?

last, near the club-moss is what looks like a drosera rotundiflora. found him in a saracinea pot I have. Is he looking alright? he only has one dewy leaf but has a nice green center. is he just dormant?

The Drosera is indeed dormand and looks fine to me.

When seeds from D spatulata go into the nephentes pot ,good for you ,it s shall grow well and not harm any other plants,

Cheers Will
