Plant A Mosquito-Repellent Container Garden
Fill the container with the growing medium. Designer Mark Kintzel used compost; commercial potting mix (one without slow-release fertilizer) would work, too. If the medium is dry, moisten it slightly. Press firmly to compact it, and mound it into a dome.
Press small patches of moss onto the medium, arranging them to completely cover the surface.
Water as needed to keep the moss green and lush. Kintzel watered his moss urn about twice a week—more often during hot weather. Even if the moss dries out while you're on vacation, it will quickly revive once you resume watering.
