What moss did you use?

Here are some close-up shots of the three mosses.

In moss clump 2 it's difficult to see the moss because it's virtually all flower/seed shoots.

Thanks, Keith.

And, today I was in Cambridge, saw these terraria for sale in a clothes shop. Each with a ficus inside:

I think, if they are really selling for 115 to 140 quid this is easy money!! It is relatively simple to make, especially for anyone here, and the materials/ ingredients would cost around £30-£40. But realistically, who would buy one of these? If they look good to you, I guess you're more likely to make it yourself.

Thanks so much!
But I am very self-critical. After I watched some Y-T videos of SerpaDesign recommended by Keith, like this one: How to Propagate Your Own Moss, I see several things that could be a lot better. for example my drainage layer of pebbles is probably double the thickness it needed to be. I'm resisting the urge to go in there and start again!

So I bought two more glass jars :suro: I seriously shouldn't be getting into this... but I think I'll try doing one with a small ficus to see how it fares.
