I'll surely try this.
We do not buy Coconuts and I do not know of any one who does but I can ask at the Green Grocer if they have any shells. I can break the shells up and this would give me a greater flatter surface area as I do not want much height, I can make it look like a mossy rock.
Sarah bought some livermoss a couple of months ago. That was tied to a piece of coconut shell, which made us wonder and ask the dealer about it (mainly because that was not what is had looked like on the website). We were told that that was how they had gotten it from the greenhouse and that the picture they used on the website was outdated. The moss is doing fine, and we have not really given any more thought since then. Here in Denmark we mainly get coconuts around Christmas, but I guess that we this year will try to keep the shells.
I took the liberty of looking online for coconut shells, and found the following site : http://www.coconutking.com/coconut12shells.html. There are probably other sites, but this was the first hit.
A few years ago when I was fishing in the Tropic Torris Straits just north of Australia I could have got many as I wanted as they were growing wild on the Island I was based at for one week.
I will be using a moss that is collected in the wild as long as its kept damp and no ferts used it should grow very well.
Looking good Karthik that grew pretty quickly.
Nice and green too.
Thanks Jason. Yes, surprisingly it grew fast and quick.
