    Hi there, could anybody tell me where I can get my hands on some Jave Moss in the Johannesburg or Pretoria area. And if I can get hold of some, how much attention does the moss require to grow successfully.

    There's a guy on the aquatic plant forum that specializes in mosses and often give bunches away. Not sure if he's on here too.

    Thanks solex69

    Solex69 – thanks for the offer – I actually found someone here in Johannesburg who offered to give me some – but I will take you up on it if I don’t come right.

    I'll give you a nice handful. Once it's attached, It grows like the business!! You wont need much.

    I'm in Bordeaux. Close to Old Parks sports ground.

    I have anubias, but none available to swop at the moment... You can have the Java Moss. It grows quick enough to replace... I have 1 or 2 other plants, but I've started my high light plant collection and the old ones have been thrown out over time, but we'll see what I have when you come around.
