Moss has no true roots, so it absorbs all of its moisture and nutrients through its simple, yet elegant, leaf structures. That's
why creating a terrarium with moss is incredibly easy - simply place the moss inside the terrarium and water.
If kept indoors, terrariums with moss require more light than you might realize. They definitely need a fair amount of
relatively strong, natural light, or more regular artificial light from fluorescent or LED grow lights. Indoors, a large terrarium featuring moss
should be kept reasonably close to a window.
If kept outdoors, terrariums with moss should be place in a shaded area.

firmly into wet soil on top to make a good bond - moss does not do well with air space between it and the soil.
