I have two five gallon buckets full of clumps & strips of Florida moss (I can also get an enormous amount of evergreen litter).
Anyone who is experienced in growing/transplanting moss is welcome to give me advice.
I may also be willing to sell a good portion of it, preferably locally, but other arrangements may be possible in the states.
We can never go back to the way it was...

I'm not sure about Florida moss, but i've collected all sorts of moss up in Canada: Plume Moss, Club Moss, and 4 other i don't know the names off and, anywas the best advice i can give you is keep it moist, very high humidity (like a dart frog tank).
I've had good success keeping the moss in large flat rectangular margarine tubs. I lay a single layer of the moss in that and give it a good spaying and put the lid back on good & tight. every month or so i open it back up and spay it really good again.
All the moss varieties that i've kept came from the forest floor, poor lighting, so it does really well in the darker conditions then in full light.

If it's true blue, 100%, right out of Florida ground moss, all You really need to do is keep it kinda cool and pretty moist.
It can some times grow faster with full lighting, but You want to keep it in the high 70s on the high side, and mist it every morning!
Good luck with it, and post so pice if You can!
