Grow Your Own Graffiti Moss
Originally created by horticulturists keen to add interest to their garden designs, this recipe for moss can be used as an environmentally-friendly alternative to spray paint.
You will need a blender to make the mixture and if you plan to grow your moss outdoors you will also need a seed tray filled with compost.
- Several clumps of moss
- 1 pot of natural yoghurt or 12oz buttermilk (experiment to see which works best)
- 1/2 teaspoon of sugar
- Plastic pot (with a lid)
- Paint brush
Seemingly, getting the recipe to work can be quite difficult, the location and weather conditions need to be spot on. Moss thrives best in damp areas so if you have to grow it indoors make sure you spray it with water frequently. As soon as it starts to grow, transplant it in your chosen location and watch your graffiti art spread.
