If you don't have a lot then just tie it on with thread. That way will grow for sure. The method in this thread is more for a situation where you have a large amount of moss and want to cover a large area quickly.

I just made an account to comment on this thread!

Here's my situation: Yesterday, I've cut up (instead of grind) my fissiden into really really small pieces. Then I put it back into my tank directly under my light (which i would leave on for the duration of this project).
I then decided to put an existing driftwood I had into this (dry) tank too. This driftwood has java moss tied to it, and I was hoping this process would allow the moss to attach and root itself into the wood.
Well, this morning, I went o check on the progress and have discovered mold developing on my driftwood...

Should I continue and let the mold grow, and worry about it once i fill the tank with water again? Or should i remove the driftwood? would it affect my fish once I fill it back with water and let them return?

Little hard to see the mold but perhaps let it keep growing and see what happens.

Yes he used a meat grinder to chop up the moss into small bits.

You can also just chop the moss up with a knife or pick it apart by hand, anything to make it small and spreadable.
