Moss growing in your MM-Mix?
When it's dark and wet for a long time, a layer of moss can grow on the top layer of your soil. Especially when you're not working in your planter and aren't doing much digging.
This happens more often with planters that are mainly in the shade than with planters in full sun.
Moss doesn't matter much, it's all natural any how. So no worries!
What to do?
Remove any large clumps and scoop the rest of the moss into the mix. Keep the soil loose and give it a chance to dry.
The remaining bits of moss will disappear as soon as it gets sunny and dry.
Just like snow in the sun. ;-)
