Octoblepharum Species Growing On Aerial Roots

by Chuck Nishihira

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.
