Lichen and Moss

Picture is of Lichen and Moss found in my travels, at client's gardens and in my own backyard! Mosses are small flowerless plants that typically grow in dense green clumps or mats, often in damp or shady locations. Lichens may superficially look like mosses, and have common names that include the word "moss". The peat-mosses, comprise the two living genera Ambuchanania and Sphagnum. Lichens can grow on almost any surface. They grow abundantly on bark, leaves, mosses, rock and on other lichens, and can be found growing in rain forests alpine regions and in temperate woodland.

Planting out

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

It is not possible to grow lichen at home and samples are often collected out in the field from rock faces, from tree bark, decaying forestry even from graveyards. However, samples are unlikely to flourish unless the growing conditions from whence they came can be mirrored exactly and even then, their survival is rare. Moss can be cultivated successfuly at home from young plants usually found on sale in aquatic centres or by taking a division from an existing clump but do not take these from the wild.
