Yes, I've watched that video before and considered trying growing it that way. But, before I tried it I got some live moss that I simply put in a plastic container and poured some rainwater in it to hold for a few days until I could get to it. Well, it rained and flooded the container...I gently poured most of the water out. And, I still didn't get to moving it to a layered environment. Then I started noticing something...it was growing. So, since then I've just let it grow with an inch or so of water in the bottom of the container.
I think if I was going to do the layering method, as is in the video, I'd leave the peat moss out. Sphagnum moss doesn't have roots so it doesn't need anything to "root" into, just something to draw water to it...the dried sphagnum moss should work fine by itself...and the dried sphagnum moss doesn't have as big of problem with humic acid as what peat moss has. Just my thoughts. Apparently the guy in the video has a method that works for him. Best wishes!
