How to grow moss from spore -  Kyoto Moss (J. Roth)
How to grow moss from spores! I purchased some Kyoto Moss spores from Amazon and am going to give it a shot. For the growing medium, I've put a layer of gravel on the bottom, a layer of bark in the middle, and a layer of dampened and compressed spagnum peat moss. I then spread spores around the top and sprayed/drenched with a spore mixture of rice water and kyoto moss spores. I'll keep you guys updated on how things progress. Wish me luck!

Test Tube Ant Farm Queen Founding - Myrmecocystus Mimicus (honey pot)
New Ant Farm! After a night of furious ant video watching, I was bitten and was compelled to start a colony of my own. I moved fast. Bought a formicarium on ebay online for about $25 and bought a Queen for about $25 from a GAN vendor from AC Canada. Either way, I'm excited to start the journey of creating ant farm and nurturing it into a thriving and organized society on my desktop!

How to Grow Kyoto Moss - 3 Month Progression Update
Link for free bonsai species seeds: www.honeysloth.com For every purchase spent, I get a cut so thank you and good luck! Message me if you want suggestions for advice or input :) As much as I wanted to do an earlier update for you guys, I bided my time. While some were eager to see every update, others likened it to watching a beard grow on a pre-pubescent's face. But here we are! The substrate has changed dramatically. In all honesty, the moss probably died, revived, died, and revived a few times as I was trying to figure it out but I think it finally has a firm hold. Let me know in the comments below if you've had experience trying to culture Kyoto Moss, particularly of the Joshua Roth Brand. If you want suggestions or advice...just wanna say hi. please do! I love connecting with you guys!

Jade Plant - Bonsai update: Topping, styling, and rooting
Jade Bonsai topping was carried out shortly after the last video and was set aside to dry. I've since pruned unnecessary branches and wired down a few of the main ones. I attached a clothes hanger to the bottom so we can watch the root development of the cutting. Once the roots set, i'll be sure to update along with the ensuing bonsai soil mixing as well as repotting of this newly topped jade bonsai! :)
