Sphagnum capillifolium

4th December 2008

One of the great joys of living in the south-west is the variety of mosses that grow without much need for encouragement. I wish I was a bit better at identifying them.
I grow a few species of Sphagnum deliberately among the Sarracenia and I am very slowly learning how to sort out names for them. This one was sent to me as packing material around a plant. It is the deepest red species I grow. As far as I can tell, there are two other species growing with it in the pot, and I am now trying to separate them out and identify them.
