Grow moss Take a clump of healthy moss and crumble it into your blender. Add 2 cups of buttermilk and 2 cups of water. Blend at the lowest speed until it is completely mixed and the consistency of a thin milk shake. (add water if necessary) Paint the mixture onto rocks, pots or statuary, or simply pour it on the ground wherever you'd like your moss to grow!
Have a succulent that's overgrowing its container? There's no need to kill or ditch the plant; instead use these steps to turn one succulent into two. Who knows, you might find succulents so easy and long-lasting you'll want to send one to a friend (or yourself!).
papercrete - similar to hypertufa but uses shredded paper instead of the peat moss. Proportions are 2 parts Portland Cement, 2 parts (dry volume) finely shredded paper loosely packed, & 2-3 parts sand or perlite. Papercrete has a fairly smooth consistency & paper fibers make it easy to shape. It takes a little more water than hypertufa. When ready to use, it should be very thick & hold its shape when squeezed into a ball.
