A "How To.." question for the seasoned professionals.

How does Oliver Knott 'attach' Riccia in the following photograph? As far as I can see, it is not attached to a rock (from looking at other of his photos). Could it be attached to a 'plate' of some type? How easy is it to maintain Riccia in this form?

I read something somewhere where the person took 2 plastic needlepoint grids, cut them in circles, spread riccia over one and covered it with the other. Sort of a riccia sandwich. Then the edges were stapled together. Small stones or gravel were then used to hold the edges down.

I have no idea if that is what Oliver Knott is doing here but, I'll bet that works good!

Sorry to go off-topic, but does anyone else's monitor hum when they view that nature-aquarium aquarium website? Everytime I look at that site it does that and I never figured it out.

Jay, Thanks for the link. I suppose it must be that method used or perhaps attachment to slate.
