Moss growth methods ?
#1

Hello,
I have a 50 gallon vivarium with 1 red eye and I cannot seem to get moss to grow. I have purchased it, collected it and done all i could to get it to grow but it will either just turn brown and die or just sit and not grow. What could I be doing wrong ? Any suggestions with types of moss that would grow best or better ways to get it to spread?

thanks!

I have a superUV daylight bulb in a 12 inch fixture set to emit UVA and UVB. Not sure the wattage.

Do you know if the moss you have does well in a viv environment? You would think that it would but make sure you are not getting some moss from a colder region that does not do well in your tank.

By the way welcome to Dart Den, my brother lives in Austin.
