I was just wondering if anyone had any success of growing moss on a windowsill. I just recieved a sandwich bag full of Taiwann Moss. It is going into a 5 gallon shrimp tank. I plan to make moss wall/carpet, and therefore am trying to grow out the moss. I have a clear transparent tray about 12 inches long, 6 inches wide, and 1 inch tall. If I were to spread out the moss in that, put water in it, gave it ferts, would it grow?
It will be sitting on an eastern facing window, so it gets about 3 hours of direct sunlight (6:00am - 9:00am), then about 4-6 hours of indirect sunlight. The water is at room temperature (not sure what temp the room is, I would guess 60-70 degrees F). And there is no filter or surface agitation.
Will I have sucess growing this moss in the windowsill dosing ferts and excell? Or am I just wasting my time?
