When it comes to growing moss in a plant pot, it is actually pretty easy. The first step includes gathering the moss itself. Then you fill the pot with good quality soil. After that you tear your moss into small pieces and then press it firmly onto your moist potting soil. Then place your container where the plant will be exposed to light shade or partial sunlight. Then water as needed to keep moss green.
- Concrete or terracotta pots work well because they keep the soil cool, but other containers are also acceptable.
- Never harvest moss from private land without permission and never harvest moss from public lands until you know the rules for that location.
- Fill the pot with a good quality commercial potting soil, preferably one without added fertilizer. Mound the potting soil so the top is rounded. Moisten the potting mix lightly with a spray bottle.
