How about moss milk shakes? There has been some luck in blending mosses
with buttermilk and spreading this slurry on your substrate. My
references to this come from Japanese Horticulturist, but there are no
research publications on this technique. Has anyone tried this and do
you know of any methods papers on moss milkshakes? Perhaps I should try
