For a few days every spring, the light in New Hampshire turns this amazing green as the sun filters through new leaves. It is one of my most vivid New England memories.

Moss as a houseplant--how fun! Does it need a lot of light?

In case DS has more questions about the moon and the sun: the moon is not always on the other side of the earth when the sun is out (though maybe it was last night...I haven't seen it lately). You can check it out here: http://www.moonconnection.com/moon_phases.phtml

Supposedly, not much light and lots of moisture. We'll see. I love moss, so I'd hate to kill it! Good point about the moon; I started trying to explain that and then realized I was only digging in deeper instead of extracting myself from naptime, so I simplified! I was assuming the moon wasn't up, though, because we'd seen it rise the previous night.

I think you have to use filtered water on moss. Or something. I never was able to keep it growing as a houseplant and tried many times.

So, I'm sure its just me but........what is that last picture? A green planter with water in its saucer???

Yep, that's what it is.

Nothing online said filtered water only, as far as I can remember. I'll give it a few weeks before I destroy the other moss still outside. :)
