How to make a moss bowl

What is a moss bowl?

Moss bowls are low maintenance yet stunning and unique centrepieces. They look great on a coffee table and even a live moss bowl only requires an occassional misting.

They have become very popular, with even Khloe Kardashian using one in the centre of her livingroom.

We have made this guide to show you how to make your own. Or, if you prefer, you can shop our range of live and preserved moss bowls here!

3 Easy Steps to Make Your Own Bowl

Step 1

First add a layer of clay pebbles to your bowl.

Leca clay pebbles are great for increasing humidity for one or many plants.
A good soil mix will keep your moss happy and healthy

Step 2

If you are using live moss then add a layer of soil designed for moss bowls. We have our own mix available here.

If you are making a bowl with preserved moss then you can skip this step!

Step 3

Add the moss on top! Be as creative as you like, you can add half moss and half colourful pebbles.

If using live moss this would be a good time to give it a little mist of water before adding anything else on top.

Add ornaments on top, candles (but take caution if you light them) or anything else beautiful or special you choose.

It really is this easy! Simply lay the moss on top and then add your decorations.
