Members of the five Moss Classes  

 MOSSES of South Africa

5 Classes of Mosses

 
This is a small page about the five mosses that made "My Kingdom" perfect, according to: TAXONOMY PLANT COLLECTION while I lived in South Africa.

The ID on these mosses are still in process. All are from the southern part of South Africa. More South African mosses.

 This is how I try to grow my mosses. The steel bowl should be able to do with out watering for 14 days or more.
 

These are the five mosses in my collection. Below are more members from those classes.
