    I have an golf portion tied down on two manazita sticks.
    Half of the moss is starting to turn light green and brown.

    The temp is under 78
    pH is 7.1
    No nitrates or ammonia.
    Any suggestions?

    Hi

    How about adding some fertilizer? Your description sounds to me like it is starving.
    Plants need light, CO2, N, P, K as macro nutrients and Fe, Mg, Mn, S, B, Co, Li, Cu, I, Mo, Ni, Sn, F, Al, Zn, ... as trace nutrients to grow healthy.

    If you can't does enough of a nutrient like CO2 you can reduce the light a bit to limit the need of the plant and keep it alive this way.

    Regards,
    Dominik Riva

    No nitrates? Should be more like 10ppm. Pls read the info on this site about EI and dosing strategies.
