Here’s a quick example of how a tropical moss culture progressed over about 2 months. This culture was created using the most basic, quick, easy method – division.

Moss Culture 1A Growth Progression – 2 months

0 days – moss sample has been cut into pieces and placed in culturing container

24 days – moss has grown significantly since initial sampling

40 days – moss is filling in nicely

59 days – Moss is almost completely covering the substrate, and is ready to be harvested, or further spread out for exponential culturing.

Start to Finish Comparison – 2 months


Culturing moss can be a slow process, but it’s worth the effort when you find a species that you really like.

The sooner you start, and the more often you do it, the more moss you’ll have to use in new builds, trades, or experiments.
