Prepare your workstation, wearing gloves to protect your hands from dye in the moss. Soak a sheet of moss (shown in container at far left) in a container of water until it is damp.
Pour soil into a clean container and add water until soil is damp enough that you can shape it into a sphere about four to eight inches in diameter. (Larger spheres give root systems more room to grow.)
Lay a piece of sheet moss on your workstation, dirt-side up.
Place plant in the center of the sheet moss.
Divide soil sphere in half and pack around the plant’s root ball.
Wrap moss around the soil sphere.
Use twine to tie the moss in place.
Once the moss is held securely by twine, add an extra layer of twine or decorative ribbon that can be used for hanging.
