This tray was originally planted with Moreton Bay Fig (Ficus macrophylla) seeds.  The seeds never sprouted.  At least after three months a have a lovely, lush lawn of moss!  It's quite nice actually.  I've been watering it regularly and have grown quite fond of it.  It has a clear lid, but I removed it for the photo.  Sometimes failures in one area can lead to triumphs in others. :)


  1. hey, your moss tray looks awesome! I really want to get into growing moss for terrariums, where did you get the seeds?

  2. Moss actually grows from spores. I didn't plant it, it just ended up sprouting! I'd recommend going to garden centres and looking for most growing in random cracks. Ask if you can take a little and that should get things started quicker than just waiting.


Thanks for contributing!
