looking good ben. some nice progress there.

is it difficult to get the java moss to stick to the driftwood? did you use fishing line? if so, do you remove it once the roots settle in?

when everything was dry i put small lines of gel super glue on the wood and just held clumps of moss on the glue till it dried, once glued on the java moss will spread and attach itself. This method works for moss, java fern, and anubias, you can also use fishing line but it needs to be removed with the java fern and anubias once it attaches itself. The only downside is that the glue will turn white under water and can stain the wood so a little in an inconspictious place is recommended
