    Hi members.
    I have a couple of species of mosses that's doing very good in my setup, but I would like to know from you guys: How should I prune them? ::)
    I want them to cover my wood and not just be big clumps. Should I trim them short near the wood or should I just leave them and let them do their own thing?

    Thanks
    Izak

    Wait for them to get to a decent length then trim and re-tie it will half your propagation time..
