    The recipe for growing moss on a planter or pot is a small handfull of the kind of moss you want to grow, 2 cups of buttermilk or yogurt, 2 cups of water or beer & 1/2 tsp. of sugar Wash the moss to get out some of the dirt. Mix it all in a blender till it is smooth like paint. Don't miss too much you want the moss to be alive. If you think it is too runny and will drip add a little corn syrup to thicken it. I use a blender I bought at a garage sale for this and all my other concoctions that I don't want to put in my good blender. Use a paintbrush to paint the moss mixture on your planter. After about a week give the planter a light misting of water. Sometimes it takes a few weeks to get it growing really well. Just keep giving it an occasional misting, so it doesn't dry out. Happy growing!

    collect moss from other areas. Chop and mix with buttermilk. Spread on unglazed clay pots. Keep in damp area or mist daily until moss attaches and begins to grow.
