You said this works with rocks... I am going to throw a couple in my blender to see if I can get them to grow like the moss. All my rocks are small and seem to grow real slowly!
Milk and rocks in blender... got it!
Just kidding, I knew that you were saying that the moss growing should work on the rocks, as it does on land/wood. Not that I should try to throw the rocks in the blender and spread them to make them grow.
"Basically, you stick a handful of moss (with some dirt attached) and some buttermilk/yogurt into a blender and blend it until the moss looks fairly well masticated."
. . .
"This method also works on stone, supposedly..."
Made me look twice!
Do you have to use a blender, or can you just manually break the moss apart? You see, I make milk-shakes all the time, and I don't want the moss and dirt taste or bacteria and parasites transfering into my drinks.
Is this the same method as "CORKING" or is it more of a "CLIPPING" method? Or is this really just an overdone seed planting.
I ask this because the mushrooms I was growing, before I really knew how to grow them, were being planted in a similar fashion. Pulp, nutrient dope them, then spread. When all I had to do was tap the mushroom lid a couple of times to drop the reproduction spores from the mushroom caps.
I have four types of low growing plants that I keep calling mosses. One is a northern treestump swamp clump moss, one is variatin of the spanish moss that they sell in bags (also from up north, it actually grows inside the clumps of treestump swamp clump moss and NEEDS constant moisture), another is the normal stone/tree clump moss that you see all over the "Poison dart frog" websites, and the last one I don't think is a moss, it looks like an underwater plant that you always see in every fishtank, but it grows on shady wet land only.
And one last cool plant that I found, it cuddles up its thin needle like leaves to its stalk when my tanks humidity is low, and puffs out like a mad cats tail when humidity rises back to normal. Sort of like those ivy plants that retract when you touch them, except these expand when you breath on them (Hot moist air).
I should sacrafice half of each to try this method, now that I have an extra 20G Long tank, but I am hesitant, because now that winter is here, I can't collect any more of these cool plants.
I will post pictures as soon as I thaw out my camera, it is frozen outside in my car... (Figuratively speaking)
