Moss is one of the earliest plants.... and it's superb at evolving and adapting.

Take a handful of moss.
Toss it in the blender with two cups of milk.
Blend it well. (Make sure no one drinks it!!)

Paint or pour it onto surfaces that you can see and check on.... rocks, bricks, walkways, cracks and crevices.Check on it every few days to see its progress.

Your moss will look very similar to the original moss!

We'll show you pictures in a few days.


  1. This is fantastic! I can't wait to see the update shots. :)

  2. I had heard about this. Thanks for the recipe. My oldest is turning into quite the naturalist. She will love this.

  3. Your welcome MK!

    Sheri - me too! :)

  4. Awesome! I can't wait to be back home in the lush Pacific NW where moss is everywhere. Do you think it would work with soy milk?

  5. jbj-
    I don't know! I was wondering that, too.
    Since we live in the desert, and moss can be hard to come by, I didn't want to take any chances, and I made it with cow's milk. (and since my daughter wouldn't be drinking it. lol)

    I'm just really not sure!

  6. I can't wait to see your results, and try it as well!

  7. I wish we lived someplace where moss will actually grow. (We live in Colorado and every year it seems to get dryer and dryer.) Maybe we need to work on creating a little moist microclimate.

  8. Thank you Steph, what a wonderful idea!

  9. What we'd like to do with moss is get a microscope and look for water bears in it... Just need a microscope!

  10. We are covered in moss, but we're going to do this anyway. Thanks for the idea!


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
