    Do growers of this one recommend moss around the roots, or rather just attached to the mount with no moss? Thanks!

    Two votes, no moss. That's a consensus. Thank you!

    I still have mine exactly the way I bought it. It came with a little bit of moss but now all of the roots are in the air or on top of the moss.
