    Anyone here grown Fissidens of any form in low light/ low tech conditions? If so how did it effect the plant ? Was there any noticable differences, from the same plant grown in a hightech envoironment...apart from the rate of growth ??

    Thanks

    Here's a little bit of info from Chee Pang that might help: http://www.plantgeek.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5456&sid=3774bfb9fef19f0b3a4518216644e5bb

    Fissidens Fried or as it comes ??

    Well now I have had a little feedback on this I guess I should state my reasoning for the inquiry. Recently bought some Fissidens along with some other plants which I may add were very healthy, now the Fissidens was like a tan Gold color almost.

    When I communicated with the seller I asked if he had dipped the plant or overdosed Excel to rid some Algae. To which he replied, that was not the case & the reason for the color was it had been grown in a lowtech tank.

    As I have not tried this I said I would try it in a reasonably high tech envoironment to see if it changed to the same healthy looking dark green as all the other Fissidens I've had in the past.

    Has anyone seen this coloration in fissidens from low light conditions...Everything I've experienced in low light conditions seemed to be darker.

    Moss should be green, it got fried.

    This seems to do best with CO2/low light IME.
