Potted Moss for Decorative Touch

January 16, 2011

Here is a simple project which only takes minutes to do and adds an earthy, organic touch to a room; WILD MOSS IN A CLAY POT. First, fill a pot with dirt leaving about 1/2 inch from the rim.  Next, add water until dirt is moist.  Lastly, place and press moss into the dirt.  If placing on anything valuable, use a saucer underneath the pot.

    Great idea! When I’m out hiking I love to see moss growing, but wondered how I could have it’s beauty at home to enjoy. Love it!

      And the wonderful thing about moss it retains a lot of its moisture, so watering (or remembering to water) on a regular bases is not required.

    The last time I saw moss was being used to cover the roots of a bonsai tree. Never thought of using it as table top decoration, pretty creative and convenient – no pruning necessary ha!

    You may have your own reason but I thought it would be a good idea to put your YT videos on your blog and vice versa.

      I never thought about the the “no pruning” but you’re correct. Should have add that in the article. Thanks.
