Does moss only grow on one side of a tree?

    No, moss does not ONLY grow on one side of trees. Mosses are found chiefly in areas of low light and dampness; any area of the world. Mosses are common in wooded areas and at the edges of streams, and few species are wholly aquatic. Mosses require moisture to survive because of the small size and thinness of tissues, lack of cuticle (waxy covering to prevent water loss), and the need for liquid water to complete fertilization. But depending on whether it is in the northern or southern hemisphere, there may be more moss on one side of the tree than the other, and this is assumed to be because of the lack of sufficient water for reproduction on the side of the trees facing the sun.
