Become a Boss of Moss

One of my favourite things to do is walk barefoot through moss - weird, right?

What is Moss?

Moss is a non-vascular plant that lacks true roots, stems, and leaves. Instead, it absorbs nutrients and water through its leaves and stems. It reproduces through spores rather than seeds, making it a unique and fascinating plant. It is typically found in moist environments and plays a crucial role in the ecosystem by providing habitat for insects and small animals, as well as helping to prevent soil erosion.

How Do You Grow Moss?

Growing moss can be a rewarding experience for those looking to add a touch of green to their vivarium or indoor space. Moss typically thrives in shady, moist areas with low-to-medium light conditions. To grow moss, simply transplant small patches of moss from a healthy source to the desired location and keep it moist until it establishes itself.


Moss is a shade-loving plant that prefers indirect sunlight or dappled light. Direct sunlight can cause moss to dry out and die, so it is important to provide it with the right amount of light to thrive. When growing moss in a vivarium, make sure to use a plant grow light, otherwise it will die.


Avoid watering with mineral heavy water. Use spring, distilled, or reverse osmosis water.


Moss is happy to grow on almost any surface, such as cork, wood, branches, or rocks. Moss does not have true roots, but rather it will grow in a mat-like fashion.


There are thousands of different species of moss, each with its own unique characteristics and growing requirements. Some common types of moss include java, liverwort, sheet moss, and spikemoss. Each type of moss has its own preferred habitat and growing conditions, so it is important to research the specific needs of the moss you are interested in growing.
