Using live moss to case an outdoor tek?
    #1349123 - 03/04/03 08:54 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I was wondering what your opinions are on this hypothetical situation...
Would using living moss on top of an outdoor tek, instead of the traditional "1 inch layer of dirt" benifit it in any way? I think it would, but thats just my stupid hypothesis.
What do you think?

I just thought that MAYBE moss would be a little less suspicious that 50/50 casing in an outdoor tek... also less suspicious that colonized dung in a hole.
Plus, didn't staments make mention of mushrooms growing through fescues? Well, living moss (not the tree kind) seems like it would be better, so.

Just completely based on my experiences with moss in no relation to fungus, doesn't it seem that the fiber/roots/whatever of moss would be too tough to grow through?

don't know if moss would be beneficial, other then it would hold moisture .
but, for an inconspicuous outdoor grow, just cover with a thin layer of whatever is surrounding .leaf litter, bark dust, weeds, flowers, whatever, should not be a problem, so long as it isn't too deep .

I don't know, but its a really cool idea. Moss looks really cool, especially on a sunny afternoon. We have hundreds of feet of bright green moss pathways in the woods behind our house. It would look too cool to see mushrooms popping up through them. Plus, I get this feeling that gnomes like to live in the moss, no doubt theyd appreciate the company of some magic mushrooms.

Psychoslut - "naw, moss sucks"
Are you talking about spagnum moss commonly used in casings? I'm talking about the lush green carpet found on forrest floors.

Che_Night_Soil - "landscape fabric to prevent weeds"
Interesting. Do you think this would blend in well with the natural surroundings, though?
"Have you had your fun yet?"
Absolutely!

valour - "doesn't it seem that the fiber/roots/whatever of moss would be too tough to grow through?"
This was not the impression that I got when I picked up a clump of moss. It fell apart readily. Also, the depth was about an inch or so... I imagine grass, which have much deeper roots, would inhibit mushrooms more... but I see mushrooms growing through grasses just fine.

LoverofEarth - "I get this feeling that gnomes like to live in the moss"
I'm only a little worried that this gnome population will pick the mushrooms and use them as umbrella's, on a rainy day!

I thought you were messin' around. If you use moss and it works, be sure to post about it. This guy I know covered Moe's tek sparingly w/ dead apple leaves and grass clippings, and hopes that it will work.

Here are a few pictures I took..

In this one the moss is seemingly inpenetrable. You wonder how the fuck anything could grow up between it.

hmmm...


For this picture I let the moss dry out a little bit.
Here you can see the true nature of the moss. It?s really a bunch of little plants growing tightly together... You can see how pins could form in between the plants (not to mention there would be an excellent humidity for pinning) And although the roots seem a little packed together, I don?t think it?s a problem that the mycelia can?t navigate, they grow though casinging all the time, even regular grass!

is anyone familiar with this type of moss, or would you imagine another type of moss would work better?

Or,you could plant some grasseed and say you have no idea what they are talking about and that mushrooms grow by themselves all the time

Psilocybin Cubensis mushrooms don't grow naturally in many places.

Back to the original question though, Moss would be a cool casing layer. Why not try in in an indoor tek?

Is it possible to buy live moss like sod?
