Terracotta tile front porch in need of repair

Home built in NC 1960. Terracotta tile porch cracking and separating from the rain and age. Looking for a way to repair until we can replace to the front porch in about 2-3 years.
I am not sure about what to use to clean and feel in the cracks. Also what can I use to kill the moss and growth that might be adding to the problem?


How can you post pictures with a post?

I have porches like you mention on some of my rental houses and I have not found anything that works short of removing the loose tiles and mortar and re-setting them in mortar. Caulking the cracks does little good since they often have lost their bond with the mortar underneath.
