Mood Moss, Dicranum Scoparium is a Frequent Used Ground Cover

It can survive extreme cold and even freeze. It is frequently used as a ground cover in the shade to extreme shade-covered landscape designs but found in terrariums. Mood Moss gets its name because it changes color from the moisture it receives. It appears whispy and brittle in times of drought but lush and with a velvet-like appearance when adequately watered. Mood moss is a sprawling ground cover that requires low maintenance and is ideal for beginner gardeners. To establish mood moss, be sure to clear the area it will be growing of debris and rocks. Moisten the leveled-out soil and then moisten the back of the mood moss. Firmly place the moss on the moistened ground. Water for 3-4 minutes a day, three times daily for four months to establish a deep mood moss. Mood moss can also grow on natural surfaces such as rock and wood. It can be harvested in clumps and easily transplanted. It is most commonly found growing in wooded areas and forests all across the United States. Moss does not have a root system and receives its nutrients through photosynthesis, water, and air. This is why proper watering is imperative for most establishments. Moss anchors itself to surfaces through rhizoids. If moss introduces stressful environments, it will become dormant until outside factors improve. It will not maintain a velvet and lush appearance; it may break due to being brittle.

 Mood Moss, Dicranum Scoparium is a Dramatic Color Changing Moss 


This mood moss is my favorite because it changes colors depending on how much moisture it retains. A moist mood moss would seem to have lots of depth and be very soft along with a silky appearance. A wet moss would be lovely and damp, a dry mood moss that looks thinly layered, blowing easily in the wild. It blooms well to a modest 3-4 inches in height as well. I recommend growing them in very shady locations as the moss tends to bronze in sunlight. This moss is very particular with its watering; you must water it three times a day for no longer than 4 minutes in the early stages.

This particular mood moss is harvested immediately when an order is placed. Also, it is easily broken apart for better overall coverage of your gardening area. I recommend keeping it moist in equal parts where it will be under lots of shade, thus flourishing to its full beauty. This moss is suggested not to be used for craft projects or other floral arrangements like dry moss;

It grows reasonably quickly in the US in zones 6 and 7 (but not limited to those). Many gardeners would also suggest one to water it every week depending on the humidity of one’s gardening area.
