  1. Any harm in using moss from the forrest floor as mulch to cut down on evaporation?
    Cant get rice hulls.

  5. I can't address growing reefer in pots, but my wife made a couple of 'moss gardens' outside.
    It seemed a remarkably good mulch... and did not require shade or humidity; simply transplanted.
    Our moss grows on a shaded hillside, but transplants well.
    I wouldn't bring it inside, however.

  7. I just wanna use it as a mat to cover soil up..

    That's here.
