if you have never killed a tree, you are not doing bonsai

:D :D :D OMG so many moss obsessed people at one place
But I guess I would be too if I haven´t had my source of moss not far from my home :)
It is vital for my trees as zeolite they grow in dries way too quickly in summer.

Try.
Just try to "grow" moss here in Brazil.
We are now in the beginning of autumn, temperatures are mild (30/32C when sunny), but the moss FRY after just one day in the sun!

Ha, Mimo... At this pace you are taking, in no time you´ll end up being an European authority in Penjing compositions...

As for the moss issues... Yes, same as Clicio, do try to grow some moss on 45ºC in full summer time or even in Spring with temps of around 25ºC with no rain whatsoever :dry:

Ha... That´s why I said European... Still, and now being completely serious, the experience you are gathering with Penjing compositions is not to disdain. As for Chinese and Indonesian Penjings... Well, they might be very well unbeatable, after all, centuries of experience fall at their side first. But, hey, do no falter in your purpose... There is nothing stronger than a man with a purpose or with an idea.
