I’ve had two terrariums for the past several years, but the moss keeps dying. The fact that I can’t even keep moss alive isn’t a surprise to me, but it’s still frustrating. Last time my terrariums died, I lived in Indy and had to order moss off Etsy. I rebuilt the terrariums with North Carolina moss and documented it here. Now that the NC moss has bit the dust, it was time to restore them again. Lucky for me, I now live in a state where moss covers everything that doesn’t move. Literally.
So I went outside and around the corner of the house to this concrete block…thing… It’s basically a moss garden.
Scraped up some pretty little sections of moss…
And I got to work!
This time, I’m going to put them somewhere less out-of-the way with the hopes that I remember to water them once a month. But if the moss goes dead again, I happen to know where to get more!
