Octoblepharum Species Growing On Aerial Roots

These three photos were taken in situ in Panama. The moss Octoblepharum was found growing nicely on the thin aerial roots of a tree.  You can also see a few other bryophytes like a Plagiochila species.  This would be a great way to grow this species in a terrarium. Accentuating the ethereal star-like qualities of this moss.
