Difference between Spagnum moss & Peat moss?
OK, I went to my local Lowes, the only "Peat moss" I found was "Spagnum Peat moss, Enriched with Miracle Grow". I didn't think it was the "Right Stuff". So, I didn't buy it, but, they didn't have any other moss Except "Spagnum moss". You know, the stuff that looks like the actual moss. I guess what they make wreaths out of, & cover the potting baskets with. Anyway, I went to a local Flower shop & asked for "Spagnum Peat Moss". What they had was made by (sold by) FTD & was only Labeled "Spagnum Moss". It didn't say ANYTHING about Peat. But, it looked like the "Right Stuff". Kind of like what Potting soil looks like, without the Perlite. Plus, it does say it has Organics in it. Is this the "Right Stuff" to use? I'd hate to use it if it's isn't! I only spent $5.00 on the whole bag & I do terrestrial plantings too, so it wouldn't kill me to use it in potted plants out of the Aquarium. Was I right in thinking that I shouldn't use the stuff with Miracle grow in it?
Thanks for any info you can give me...
I'm just totaly new to this whole Planted tank thing... I would have used it lastnight if Lesco was open when I got out of work.. They close at 4:30, I got out @ 4:45 yesterday... LOL ! Just My Luck! So, that means I couldn't pick up my SoilMaster Select.
