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

To thicken thin branches make a cut just below the branch or a bud on the branch. The sugars produced in the leaves of the tree move down to the roots through the phloem, this flow of sap is interrupted by the cut and the accumulation of sugars above the cut increases the vigour as it is used by the bud, forcing it into action. As soon as the wound heals the normal sap flow resumes.
