Mosses grow naturally in most temperate areas of the world. They are primarily found growing in lightly shaded areas or where there are periods of sun in the morning or late afternoon. Some species grow well in extremely deep shade. Mosses thrive in moist, average soil. Most mosses will survive periods of drought and quickly regenerate once water becomes available again. As a group, they withstand heat and cold, grow slowly and live a long time.
