My experience in germinating spores is limited, but my students and
I have successfully germinated Fontinalis squamosa, F. dalecarlica,
Buxbaumia aphylla, Sphagnum magellanicum, and Funaria hygrometrica on
plain agar. In over 100 cultures of Fontinalis squamosa, the only ones
that grew gametophores were the contaminated cultures.
