How To Moss Cover Clay Pots

Nothing is more lovely than aged terracotta flowerpots.  But sometimes you just don't have the time to wait for it to happen naturally.  Here are a few tips that will help speed along the process.

Start by locating a few handfuls of live moss. Most local nursery or landscape companies will have live moss to sell. Put it in a blender with 1 cup of buttermilk and 1 cup of water.  Blend till it looks like a brown milkshake.  It will smell kind of bad but just ignore that.  Now take a artist brush and paint this mixture onto the clay  flowerpots that you want to have covered with moss.

From small to extra large, this formula will work on all real clay garden planters.  Even if the mix is chunky that is fine.  Those chunks will turn green in 24 hrs.  Lastly, mist the outside once a day to keep the moss growing.  Just make sure that you
plant something that can handle daily watering.

That's it. Not much to do and the final effect is stunning.
