RE: moss


Another, simpler, recipe calls for a handful of moss, a can of beer and a
1/2 tsp of sugar.  Buttermilk may be used in place of the beer. Spread 1/4
inch thick and in 5 weeks moss begins to grow.  The author of this one goes
on to describe a method of growing it in removable sheets as well.
