Grow Your Own: Moss?

Moss can make a great decorative feature for terrariums and gardens.

Here’s how to make your own moss mix.

What You Need:

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup water
  • Handful of moss (rinsed to remove dirt and small stones)
  • 1/4 teaspoon white sugar
  • Blender
  • Paint brush
  • Mist bottle

Tip: Dead or alive moss will work.


  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend for about 30 seconds or until moss has separated.
  2. Use a paint brush to paint moss mix onto rocks or whatever surface you choose. Tip: Moss likes growing on porous surfaces such as rock, brick, wood or ceramic pots.moss5
