scrape a little off the rocks here and there, gather a couple of cups. Dump it in a blender, add a teaspoon of molasses and a cup of lukewarm compost tea. Turn on the blender.
Take the soup outside with a wirebrush and a paintbrush/rag/or sponge. Find a rock you'd like to see covered with moss and lichens, give it a few swipes with the wirebrush on the north side of that rock. Paint it with the soup. Paint it a couple of times a day for a few days
The soup is a mix of nutrients and spores. The wire brush removes indigenous lifeforms to make way for the spores you are depositing. The north side is shaded, won't dry out as quickly. Repeated application maintains moisture and nutrient levels and also reinoculates the area giving your spores a competitive advantage.
