    Hi Guys,

    I’m just wondering if anyone has used moss balls for creating a carpet? I’m thinking that if I cut a couple open and flatten them out would they grow as a carpet? I only want to cover a small area of slate.

    Cheers in advance!

    you could mate, no reason why they wouldn’t grow accross the slate. Would it look better just to buy loose moss and tie it to the slate though?

    I wasn’t sure if you could buy similar moss in flat pieces. So either way, if it works I’m happy!

    yep, it’ll work, just use some thread to tie it onto the slate and it will soon take.

    You can buy loose moss – lots of different varieties too.

    Moss balls are´nt exactly a moss but a species af algae and they are very slow growing. So even if you could use them as lawn I wonder if you´d have the patience, I know I wuoldn´t.

    Yes man you can.. WHat you call moss ball is cladorophra, a common algae finally…. just flat it in small pieces and with a lot of patience (months..) it will make a nice carpet…. You could also do it by mixing some fissidens and some piece of pouzzolona or akadama and it will do the same, quicker…
