Indoor Grass Planters (A.K.A. "Fancy Pots")

These indoor grass planters are cute and simple, but they're also $70 a pop—a bit over the top just for a place to plant a nickel's worth of grass seeds. The oblong one is stackable, though, which could look very nice in the right setting. I've grown grass indoors for years. It's dead simple to germinate, but sometimes difficult to keep going. (I mean for grass it's difficult; it's still relatively easy, but it doesn't have the same "leave it and forget it" nature it does outside.) But you know what I still haven't been able to figure out how to grow inside? Moss. Someone needs to make a white plastic kit for growing moss inside so I can learn the secret.

    As one of my co-workers so eloquently put it, “beer is pretty good for stuff.”

    For decorative mosses on flagstone. I’ve heard spritzing them with light beer gives them the nutrients they need to grow.

    i don’t know about beer or yogurt but i have had excellent success with moss and buttermilk. and you don’t need a blender.
    take some live moss, rip it into small pieces, add it to a cup of buttermilk and apply it to where you want it to grow. keep it moist and the moss should attach and start growing within days
    if you do use a blender you can actually paint it onto the surface which is excellent for walls and other vertical surfaces

    I remember watching a home and garden TV show once and to get moss to grow where they wanted it they put it in a blender, with some water and yoghurt.

    Apparently you should use moss from the same type of material that you plan on growing it on (eg, moss from wood to grow on a wooden fence).

    Also found this recipe for growing moss too from HGTV show Grow It:

    Recipe for “moss juice”

    – 5-lb. block of potter’s clay
    – jar of fish emulsion fertilizer
    – moss

    Cut potter’s clay into cubes and soak in water until it becomes ‘slip,’ or liquid clay.
    Combine 3 parts clay solution, 1 part liquid fish emulsion, and 1 part moss in a blender.
    Paint over all cement objects where a moss-covered surface is desired.
    To clean the blender, fill a sink with hot water and detergent. Let the blender soak for two hours, then run it through the dishwasher.

    Keep painted concrete pieces in a cool, dark place. Within two months to a year, moss will grow on the objects.
