Maybe the spores falling to the ground is giving the moons some kind of propulsion? 

The spores weigh something, or blowing air from below would blow them away. And enough of them to replace their number must come down. In order to push the moon up they must come down with a lot more speed than gravity would give them. That means they have kinetic energy. That would go into the planetary atmosphere and crust at the lunagree. They'd all be blown into atoms at the Rock.

Hmm. That is super weird. I think that would require an active force keeping it that way - a RL geostationary orbit is equatorial. There are non-equatorial geosynchronous (orbital period = one day) orbits, but they don't stay continuously over one point on the Earth's surface.

yup, but considering allomancy and rosharan surgebinding, its not too hard to imaging some means of investiture providing the lateral force required to produce the geostationary-ness (geostationality???)

as for the spore falls providing propulsion, that would be the wrong vector.

I think the more interesting interaction is how do the moons all stay equidistance.  do they sense each other?  is something controlling/positioning them all?
