    tongue (letters found in "along route")

    Cute...never seen one in that style.

    Perhaps an anagram indicator also required, like:
    Moist plant interspersed randomly along route (6)

    Clever try, Denis, but that's not what I have in mind.

    Yes, if your interpretation were correct, I think the clue would definitely require an anagram indicator.

    Hint: "interspersed along" is an indicator phrase. It has the same meaning as the indicator in the special mention appearing at the bottom of the rules that you use 99.9% of the time.

    Was unaware of that example:
    must have been added recently...

    However, I'm still stuck.
    Looks like "moist" is the direct,
    made up of letters from plant and route.

    I think I've finally got it. Interleave a three-letter word for the VERB "plant" with a three-letter word for the noun "route". The result is a way a person can be moist. Right? (I don't know what rules you are using for spoilers.)
