Caption: Mosses growing on mortar. This unidentified moss is growing preferentially on the mortar between the bricks. Plants colonize ecological niches like this due to improved growing conditions, in this case increased moisture. Mosses (phylum Bryophyta) are small plants that lack true roots, woody tissue and flowers. They grow in damp places worldwide.
