Does anyone know how to get Moss balls to reproduce?

Do you just break them apart? Do they grow warts that break off and start a new plant?

Re: Moss Balls

I have a couple of these & wouldnt mind having more, but dont want to ruin the ones I have.... Once you break them apart, do you need to constantly roll the new halves?

Re: Moss Balls

I'd guess you'd want to roll them into balls.. perhaps not "constantly" though. I've been keeping the one I got in a piece of tupperware near a window since I've yet to decide where I want to put it. I did split it.. and sort of reform it into 2 ballish shapes. And they still don't look much different than they did then.. although a bit bigger. I presume that I should pinch and pull and roll to get them into ball shape again since I don't have a lake and wave action to do it for me.

Re: Moss Balls

I was tempted to get one and rip it apart and flatten it and see what it did wrapped round the vine branch I have in my tank

That's an intersting thought. I think I'll try it myself.

Another thought is to do that tree art kinda stuff that they do at disneyland.

Maybe I'll make a bunch of moss cubes, or moss elephants...
