    I think I saw some emmersed plants growing on you back steps. I just got Tricho and Star moss and want to get it to grow that way. Any idea's? Maybe in a small container but in the sun or not? if indoor with a light, heater or what. Thanks Marica

    I am just starting to reading your "New method (?) to start..
    Ok with all that I just read I don’t remember seeing a heat index for the closed or semi closed units. In weather like now wouldn’t the plants cook? Should I leave them in the house? Which is about 75. Can I use window light that is very bright but not direct? Or would I need morning sun at least?
    Is Tricho L. and Star moss in need of their leaves covered slightly like they were in nature? Could I use the ADA AS soil (if I can find some)? Or could I use my non coated gravel and nutrient like you state for hydroponics? I am not sure what I am doing with these plants I just want to see them grow for now. I am just playing. I got a slight amount of UG from someone and it was lime green and I could not tell the roots from the tips. I would like to grow a small batch of this. If I can find it again.
    Can these plants be contained in a ring of something so they don’t spread to far? Well I ask more later probably. On page 7
