Being a New Yorker one strives for access and success. As individuals, one hopes to thrive no matter what obstacles are thrown at them. For me, I thrive in a powered wheelchair. My goal is to transform New York City and become a positive voice for the many obstacles thousands+ of New Yorkers face. Through advocating on social media, I will be the…[Read more]
I am the one who sent you a picture of a GIANT Tar Heel foot that I planted on the side of our play house. I used a variety of mosses with a small amount of buttermilk. Pasted it , by smooshing it onto the wall. I did this late August. Have been watering , misting faithfully. No growth yet. any suggestions?
I was wondering if it’s possible to grow a variety of mosses inside the home if they receive sufficient sunlight and moisture? I have tested cushion moss and silver moss and they seem to be doing well. Are there any other species which you would recommend?
As you know, we love our Tar Heel symbol. Trying to figure out the wonderful world of Moss Graffitti, I tried this on our play house here in C.Hill. I took a variety of moss, got rid of the dirt & put it briefly in the Cuisinart with buttermilk. I then squeezed out most of the moisture to get it into a workable state. Next I “pasted” it onto the…[Read more]
Hi Annie, I am wondering if you know which specific variety your polytrichum commune would be. This species seems to have several varieties such as polytrichum commune var. jensenii, var. perigoniale, var. uliginosum, var. humile.. or just a pure polytrichum commune var. commune?
I live in Denver, Colorado and have an independent two car garage sized building in a back lot I own made of solid brick. I would love to “spray” moss on the outside walls and cover the entire building in moss (if possible)
I’ve seen articles on making a buttermilk and moss cocktail in a blender and then spray the moss on the wall to get it…[Read more]
1. Is there a specific type of moss you would recommend for a green roof that would be installed in a city on top of a bus stop? It would have to withstand the elements, including sun and cold, along with being able to survive through the winter so that it would not need replanted every year.
2. What are the benefits of moss from an ecological…[Read more]
Do you have any pictures showing how people have used screening or other materials to protect their moss from squirrels?
My yard was looking fabulous and the squirrels are now constantly digging up large areas of moss.
I am a herpetologist researching four-toed salamander nest ecology. These salamanders lay their eggs in shallow pools and ditches that are lined above the surface with moss. At our research site, nests in Climacium americanum are the most successful. We are building small pools to provide additional nesting habitat and want to grow…[Read more]
I love your book! It inspired me to make a small Japanese style moss garden: I have a lovely shady site in West Wales (UK) and already had lots of moss growing in various places in the garden, so I took up my poor mossy, waterlogged lawn and replaced it with moss, transplanting from various places, on a slight mound to give slightly…[Read more]
How do I prevent different types of mosses intertwining over each other. I only want a single type of moss to be growing where I want it and nothing else. Right now the hypnum is starting to grow on my polytrichum juniperinum and I am plucking them out every single day. If I grow thuidium, then I don’t want any hypnum to be growing on it. Any way…[Read more]
Firstly I would like to appreciate your work to provide meaningful information on moss. I don’t belong to biology background but I found it easy to understand. Currently, I am working on a project in which I want to use moss as air pollution filter and decided Plagiomnium ciliare because of its color and appearance. I would like our…[Read more]
