How did you put the moss in the mesh initially? Did you pick it apart and put in a few pieces at a time? I've tried both sandwiching the moss between pieces as well as poking bunches into the mesh. But neither seem to look like they should... yours does though, what's the secret? :)

I was assured that it is... it's a slow grower and it is growing, but I think because I put it in as little bunches, it doesn't look like that yet. Maybe when it gets denser it'll look right.

I dissected the strands and placed them in a thin layer covering the piece of mesh with the tip of the frond pointing south. I sandwiched the moss between two pieces of mesh which were zip tied together. They were not poking out until they began growing outward through the mesh. It has taken a couple of months for it to look like it does now.

come on moss, grow faster!!! :D

Don't let your hardscape get completely overtaken by the moss, that's a nice portion of why the scape works for me....

Once the mosses fill in I'd suggest making a little bit of a slope with the substrate and 'bury' a little bit the bottoms of the rock to add to the depth of the layout....

Could you post some pictures of it? I'd like to see how far it's come over the last year. I love the moss wall but can only see random google images.
