What I've understood from the prior posts by others is that java moss does not like ferts or high lighting. I don't think it's the amount of *time* the lights are left on but rather the *strength* (or rating) of the lights. I gather that java moss is a plant with little to no requirements in order to thrive and obtain good growth? Is that correct, guys??
correct, a 20watt light kept on for 10 hours does not equal a 40 watt light kept on for 5 hours
and IMO java moss is one of the easiest plants to tend for.. i literally throw it in my tank and forget about it. i do however dose ferts, its some iron enriched plant supplement in a liquid form. its not dosed just for the moss but rather all the other plants in the tank
