I have a bare patch of shady ground in my background, about 10 feet by 15 feet in area, where I'd like to start growing a healthy layer of moss this year. I have a limited budget, less than $100 US. I've come across several approaches to growing moss:
1) Transplant live moss to the target area (a possibility - there is plenty of moss growing elsewhere on my property),
2) Run live moss through a blender and spread the slurry (presumably containing live spores) onto the planting area,
3) Purchase moss spores or live plants from a garden store or online.
Does anyone have experience successfully growing moss? Which is the most effective technique?
