  1. According to, http://www.debrain.net/2009/moss-facts.html/comment-page-1:

    Moss patches can make its own soil from particles in the environment

    Reindeers eat moss because it contains a chemical that keeps their blood warm. Much like the anti-freeze in your car

    During summer, moss can reduce its metabolism to almost zero in order to survive

    Moss can grow in temperatures just above zero degrees

    Moss cannot survive in a polluted environment

    It is not true that moss only grows on the north side of trees. In fact, they will grow anywhere that has moisture and sunlight
