Growing moss in sun

Q: How can I grow nice moss as sun doesn's seem to agree with moss, while most trees require sun?

A: There are many varieties of moss and several require sunlight. Unfortunately most of them need a damp atmosphere and not having any roots it is difficult to create ideal conditions, especially in our drying summer winds.

Random Bonsai Tip

Use vinegar and water to remove moss but it is not as effective as using Limestone Ammonium Nitrate (LAN) and water. Be very careful not to spill any of the LAN on the roots of the bonsai tree as it may burn them and may in the worst case cause the tree to die. Carefully paint the LAN and water mix on the trunk of the bonsai tree and within days you should see the moss turn brown and die.
