Simple Solution: Moss!

I am currently in the process of trying to grow an Amaryllis. So far I'm 0-for-2 in this category, so I'm very excited to report that this time, there is an actual flower stem growing, instead of just leaves! Crossing my fingers for a beautiful bloom sometime soon!

But, that's not really what this post is about. All I really wanted to do is give sheet moss a shout out for being awesome...that's right, sheet moss. Bear with me if you're like *yawn, I already know this*, because I did not realize that I could just go to Home Depot and pick up a bag of moss for a couple bucks and use it to beautify a potted houseplant.

This is how it looked before, with the potting soil all scantily clad. Not cute.
I actually went to Home Depot with the intention of picking up some of those little white stones to cover the potting soil...but then I saw the moss and thought it would look better, earthier.
Apparently I'm not the only one who's impressed with the more polished look. :)


  1. I am in the same boat and will totally be copying you on this!

  2. Bonus: it also maintains the soil moisture!
