Started this setup 2 weeks ago. Dwarf hair grass, Monte Carlo. Moss Ive used -Fissidens nobilis -Xmas -weeping.

Hair grass was planted but the Monte Carlo I just sprinkled it over the soil and let the rootes do its job( lazy method) I’ve used yogurt method on some Xmas moss and brush it on the drift wood. Rest of the Xmas is glued to the stones. Weeping and Fissidens is just palaced on the small bonzai tree. Spraying 2 times per day. 12 hours of light.

It’s going well Monte Carlo already made its roots deep in the Amazonia. Hair grass too 🙂. Now I’m on week 3.

Hope it goes well. I will update on this thread every week. Cheers

I have toyed with the idea of dry start but I'm a tinkerer and could just see mold everywhere. Kudos to you and loving the growth so far!

Dry start just jumps the carpets. This is my 1st time doing DSM. Mold just have a little bit and I already see some springtails doing their job 😊.
The growth is just amazing. Now I’m on week 6.
Will go for 10 weeks and fill in and give the plants a trim 👍
