Mood moss can be seen growing in many parts of the Great Lakes region and throughout the United States, mainly in forested areas. It also grows in Ontario, Kentucky, New York, North Carolina, and other regions. The plant itself is very thick, lush, and velvety. This plant grows in the form of clumps in vibrant humus soil or on logs. However, it can easily be added to improve the landscape for rock gardens, ground cover for miniatures, or even topiaries. If you are growing it inside, it will need a lot of artificial light. If you are growing it outside, it's theirs when planted in an entirely shady or mostly shady area.

Caring for mood moss

At the beginning of the plant's growth (1-3 months), it requires minimal moisture for establishment. The moss should be watered lightly for 3-4 minutes, 2-3 times daily. If, after three months, you want the moss to become thicker, continue the watering regimen. Once established (3-6 months), it is extremely drought tolerant. The moss is not suited for regular foot traffic but decorative purposes.

Overall, this is an excellent plant with different accent stones and planting to improve your landscape. I'd highly recommend it to any planter looking to add some decoration that accents other plants. You definitely won't be disappointed when you see the power and beauty of mood moss in your backyard!
