When it comes to soil moisture, however, i’m afraid that gravity would not likely be a contributing factor, as least, not one that would change with the phases of the moon.

Moon phase gardening considers four phases or quarters lasting about seven days each. The first two quarters are during the waxing or increasing light, from the new moon and growing up to the full moon.The moon doesn’t have soil.

Soil by definition has an organic component. The lunar regolith is probably lacking in several key compounds necessary to support plant growth on its own.

If mixed with these necessary components and organic material from earth, to make a hybrid lunar soil, it probably could grow at least some plants.
