    I loved plants all the way through college, but only about 2 years ago did I realize how much I loved moss. I love feeling how kooshy it is, and I love how well it holds water for us and other plants. I have spent the past year and a half experimenting with growing moss. I started with planting it in a wide success. Then I went to bottles (where a love for unique big and small bottles formed). I have tried to learn the names of all of them, but since there were only Latin names to learn from I sadly lost interest.

    When I found your creations I was blown away. You are doing exactly what I want to do and making it work! At this point I have only found great success in growing the moss that your figures in “uncharted territory” are standing on, and one other (that kinda looks like mini pine trees…which a lot of moss does actually).

    So I have a few questions if you would be so kind (you are the only others I have seen with products like this).
    1. You carve your figures by hand right? What wood do you use? (amazing work making them so small)
    2. Are your bottles sealed all the way? I have always sealed mine, and like I said, I have only found success with two species.
    3. You have rocks for drainage, then peat moss and potting soil?
    4. Do you grow from seed or take moss from the woods like I do?
    Basically, I am asking, how do you make so many mosses live together and get the right moisture levels that they all need?

    If I am diving too much into your secrets, then I am sorry and you don’t have to answer my questions. I am just looking for some advice from the only people I know that love to grow moss in jars like I do 🙂

    Looking forward to hearing from you, and thanks for loving moss, it doesn’t get attention like all the other plants do.
