Grow your own moss
Learning how to grow mosses indoors is a really simple task. In fact, it can be a great project for parents and children to do together. Well, start by getting a clear glass container with a lid, such as a terrarium or large jar. Place about an inch and a half of pebbles in the bottom of the container. Then cover it with about an inch of granulated charcoal, which you can find at fish supply stores.
Then add about two inches of potting soil and mist the soil with a spray bottle filled with water. You can create the base of your mini moss garden by laying out stones of different sizes and branching sticks so that the ground looks like the forest floor. It is best to place the largest objects in the back and the smallest in the front. You can place moss on the larger objects and fill the rest of the area with shredded pieces of moss flakes. Spray your little plant, cover the container, and place it in a room away from bright, direct sunlight.
Make sure to press the moss firmly onto the rocks and the ground. If the potting soil you used is fluffy, push it down to make a single dough. You can also keep the pieces of moss attached to the rocks with fishing line, if necessary. Of course, as the plant grows, it will hide the thread. You can also plant live mosses in a planter for an interesting display in an indoor hallway or hallway. You can even use live moss as indoor mulch for plants you already have inside your home.
Indoor Moss Care
Keeping moss indoors is also very easy. This is because it doesn’t need a lot of moisture or sunlight and absolutely no fertilizers. You only need to spray the surface a couple of times a week to keep the moss moist. After spraying, replace the top of the bowl, leaving only a small space for the air to be exchanged. Similarly, caring for this little plant inside your home includes giving the container the right amount of light. If you have a window through which sunlight comes in, you can place your container nearby so it can get two hours of morning light. But then remove it from direct light. You can also grow your indoor mini moss garden on a desk with a fluorescent lamp, approximately 12 inches above the container.
Beautiful Moss Spheres
To make this beautiful DIY project with moss for your home decoration you will only need moss, Styrofoam or a small ball, Mod Podge, a foam brush and a skewer. We recommend that you work it on a newspaper so that you do not get anything dirty. First, place a skewer on the bottom of the Styrofoam ball so that it is much easier to hold it while you place the moss. Using a foam brush, paint the Mod Podge over the entire ball. Then lay the moss or sprinkle it over the entire ball until it’s completely covered.
Once you have covered the entire ball, remove the skewer and place it in the pot. Of course, you can also display your moss balls without having to place them in a pot. You can simply group them on the coffee table in your living room or dining room, even in your kitchen or bathroom.
