I'm a graduate student and I need to grow moss which was collected from an
abandoned mine site. The soil from the site where it was growing has a
pretty low pH (3.5 or below) and is fairly contaminated with metals. Would
it be best to grow the moss in its native soil in diffuse light? I've read
quite a bit, but was just wondering if anyone had good ideas.
Thanks,
Marika
