Q and A: Can I Collect Moss in the Summer?


Whew, the heat is on here in Texas.  It is this type of heat that makes me want to dream of moss blanketing a cool forest floor. My question for today comes from reader Isabella:

Question: Can I collect the mosses in summer time from the forest?

Answer: I respond with a question again, does the moss you want to harvest look to be in peak health? If the moss in your area looks dry or dormant in the summer, you may want to skip collection until cooler months. You'll want to collect moss that is healthy, green, and thriving. In my experience, it can be challenging enough to transplant healthy moss harvested from the wild into a terrarium environment.  The moss receives a transplant shock from getting uprooted, it might dry out before you plant it, and it might be full of bugs or mold that might infest your terrarium (wash your moss!).  You may set yourself up for failure if you collect dry or dormant moss in summer months.

  5. The Blue Jay name is one such awesome character creation, found mainly in North America.

    The head and lower part of the bird's body are coated with blue features, which makes it the most important for beauty. A U-shaped collar around its neck, endowed in black, emphasizes the occurrence of birds unlike in a snowy environment.

    In addition, Blue Jay eats nuts, fruits, and small vertebrates mainly as part of the diet. Also known as “Jaybird” because of the noise it produces. A small bird, only about 30 cm long, makes people fall into it.
