    You should definitely try to get this plant
    ,
    picture taken from http://www.tonina-forest.net/
    Some posts about it atkillies.com and tonina-forest.net
    So far, its called Plagiomnium trichomanes
    and I think this site shows the emersed form.
    Oh, the rare old Whale, mid storm and gale. In his ocean home will be. A giant in might, where might is right. And King of the boundless sea.

    Naturally I would like some too if you can find it, but hopefully won't cost too much........

    I'm interested!
    If you've learnt, teach, if you have, give.
    Don't walk behind me as I might not lead, don't walk in front of me as I might not follow. Walk beside me, as my friend.
    Mohamad Rohaizal is my name. If it's too hard, use BFG. I don't mind.

    Anything in particular you are looking for?

    The shops there are pretty dispersed. Not to mention that shops in Taipei is nowhere near Kao Hsiung. So recommendations will be based on where in Taiwan you are going to.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    Hi,
    the plant is really nice. If it is really Plagiomnium trichomanes, then it's a bryophyt, so most probably a moss. I could find a specific information about the natual habitat of this species (should be the same species as P. acutum if you belief some sources). It should come from temperate/subtropical regions like Kyushu in Japan or Sichuan province in China and it grows terrestical. So you could have problems with a too high temperature in your tanks.
    BTW, if you can find it and it's not too expensive, so less than 30SG$, bring please some of it back to Singapore. I would like to get some of it and would let a friend do the shipement and payment.

    regards

    Robert

    This plant is nice ! There is one taiwan shop at serangoon north and last time I used to go there and see quite a number of new plants. Do they also import plants from Taiwan ?

    Oh Taipei has this Shih lin street, they say it's famous for its little eateries. I think its featured in the papers this week.
