    Right now my xmas moss seems to be doing ok in 1w per gallon and once a week ferts. But in the event that things did start to go astray, could I just buy a cheap 10 watt cfl lamp from a store like wal-mart and spot light it just for my moss? That would put the moss to 1.5w per gallon without adding any light to my other plants. Just a random thought. Has anyone else done this?

    I have!!! I have just my Xmas moss in a 2g tank it gets daily dose of flourish and have a 14w bulb over it so about 7w/g the plant has doubled in size since I got it 3 weeks ago... I am growing it so i can start a moss wall :)

    Thanks. I may just go out and purchase anyways for the sake of the moss. The small cfl lamps are pretty cheap.

    I got mine at a junk store for $10 light fixture and bulb together :)

    Nice, well I bought a 10w cfl lamp and have it set up directly on the moss. So, hopefully it works! If not, I do have another strip light that would add even more light and I can use the mini cfl for my 10 gallon I'm setting up at work.
