    Arrow Can I "grow on" my moss this way? (Photo)

    Been trimming the excess java moss out of my shrimp tank. I am loathed to throw it away so I want to grow it on to sell. In the absence of another tank set up, do you think this will work?

    I do enjoy an experiment (my other half is sick of me using the kitchenware for my tanks!)

    Cool! I will be watching/ wondering if that will work. Is that a standard incandecesent bulb?

    High enough light and water, it should work.

    Yeah it's just a 40W bedside lamp in the spare room. I thought I'd put it on each evening when I got home from work, see how well it grows. The water is unheated, but I think java moss shoudl be ok at UK room temperatures. I'll change the water a couple of times a week and see how it goes.

    It's still alive. Think it's an easy win. I might take a pic tomorrow to track any growth.

    Try a moss jar. Just tap water, some moss, and sitting in a window that doesnt get direct sunlight. Or you can use tank water with some nutrients in it, but with low enough light, its not necessary.

    I just set one up. The anacharis is growing like crazy. The moss, not so much.
