I'd like to try growing some moss on a stone statue. As it's of a dragon (and I'm Welsh) it really like it to be red-ish, at least in parts.
Any advise on a red moss, or some other plant that I could use?

There is a red lichen, but as far as I'm aware, lichens are not something you'd be able to buy, and even if you could, you can't just attach it in some way. The usual method is to paint the statue with live yoghurt, keep it somewhere shady and wait and see which mosses/lichens start to grow. Lichens which grow on something rich in iron or copper tend to be more red in colour than on stone.
