Moss Basket Care Guide

by | May 3, 2024 | Resources, Caring for your Plants


Plants will take some time to become accustomed to being out of the greenhouse environment, so be sure to watch the temperature for the first few weeks you have your moss basket outside. If the thermometer dips below 50 degrees (especially at night), you will want to provide protection for your basket.


Moss baskets generally require a good deal of water, depending on the plants used and the location of the basket. On hot, windy days, they require a lot of water!

Apply a gallon or so of water and allow it to soak into the soil for a few minutes. Then apply more water if needed. This will allow the soil to absorb the moisture and reduce under watering due to run off. If you are going to be away for several days and will be unable to water your basket, it would be best to place your basket in a reservoir where it can get continuous water. A large, deep saucer would work nicely. Or better yet, have a friend or neighbor water for you!


Start with a general all-purpose water-soluble fertilizer for two applications, every 10-14 days, and then apply a bloom booster fertilizer every third feeding, following the label to keep your plants flowering all season long.


If your plants become leggy (long and stringy) or out of balance, do not be afraid to trim them back. Use scissors to trim just below a leaf or leaf cluster. In no time they will fill out thicker and fuller than ever!
