Ever since I was little I've loved moss. The colors and textures always fascinated me and where ever I went I seemed to be picking some up and brining it home. Now that I live in a heavily wooded area it's the perfect place to grow my own moss!
How it grows
Mosses grow from spores, when the spore finds a surface it develops a threadlike branch. This branch pushes into a surface and then the moss develops tiny flat leaves. Thousands of these plants grow together to make a single patch of moss.
Take a clump of healthy moss and crumble it into your blender.
Add 2 cups of buttermilk and 2 cups of water
Blend at the lowest speed until it is completely mixed and the consistency of a thin milk shake. (add water if necessary)
Paint the mixture onto rocks, pots or statuary, or simply pour it on the ground wherever you'd like your moss to grow!
