Hi there, any one of you knows a lot about Japanese plants? Especially moss? I know there are moss gardens in Japan, so I thought maybe someone knows something about it since my research on the internet wasn't that successful except obtaining the names of a moss called Japanese Moss ( Helxine soleirolii or solerrolia ). The situation is: I've in my washbasin a swamp-plant (which is doing very well there (since I can water it a lot and the excess water runs through the drain, so the earth is wet but never too much)) and since I like both japan and moss I I want to plant some Japanese moss around the swamp plant. I found an online shop selling Japanese moss spores, but there is no information about what kind of moss it is. I mean, there must be more than one kind in japan? But I don't find anything about that on the web. If anyone knows anything about that, I would be very thankful. :)
