I just wanted everyone to know that I think The Greenhouse is so awesome, It's probably the first forum in the PPK where I am extremely likely to click on all posts made and read it all.

And here's a random image of something I thought was a fun idea, and I have the feeling you will too.

I agree! This is the best sub-forum AND that looks damn fun. Tell us more?

I don't know more really, I just saw this pic on a tumblr blog. I figure it's just living moss planted into a base. I figure it could easily be made from scratch. Moss doesn't need sunlight, just needs to be moist. Only thing I would wonder about is that if you went around picking live moss there's sure to be bugs in it, so it might be a little gross to have bugs in your bathmat? I don't know, it might be worth it for the awesome sensation of moss under your feet.

I agree! I love this room.

We just planted creeping plants along the fence around our patio, and I bet this would be really easy to do with those! We used blue star creeper, creeping thyme, and scotch moss, and after about a week of getting established, they were ready to be walked on. You can get 2x2" or 2x3" plugs at a lot of garden centers.

The moss bath mat seems to be a concept design:

The designer talks about materials used and possible commercialization in the comments.

Only reason why I think it would work better with moss than plants like you mention is that moss doesn't need root space, they don't have roots at all in fact. Just a thin layer of soil or some organic material, bark etc is all that would be needed. With those other plants it would have to be 'raised' sort of, which in certain instances might work nice, like if your bath is tall and you might like a step down or something. I think I'd like it to be pretty low though.

I love this sub-forum too, it's now the first place I go to instead of the living room or the mall.

And that bath mat is interesting but I couldn't have one because one of my cats would probably eat all the moss.

It would pretty much just get peed on in this house sadly.

This is a fabulous sub-forum. I was away for a bit (moved and no internet), so very happy to discover it. It is like a present!

I love this forum too! All the garden eye-candy is inspiring me to take pics to post. And I love that mat too--sadly though it is so damn dry where I live it would probably die even indoors with frequent watering...

I live for this section of the forum. I like being able to be of service to others and to get inspired by everyone's projects!

About moss--it grows from spores. I'll have to look into this. I'm not sure about indoor practicality, but I think it would be an awesome way to create green space in shady areas of back yards, or for shaded balcony gardens. It probably wouldn't fare well on a rooftop garden, although I've seen pictures of people who have transformed their roofs into complete green spaces!
