Zapins and all, Like Zapins said it probably will work with any kind of moss but I think it will only work on rough, semi rough rocks and wood. They will need something to grab onto.

Ya. Didn't have as much luck as the OP and I'm using some rough/porous rocks. Time to go with an epoxy solution on the rocks. Light coat of epoxy with a brush or via a spray bottle and sprinkle the moss on top. Let it dry, and voila.

I have regular fissident, so I was wondering if this method can be apply to those? Cause I do not have a lot and don't dare to test them..

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?

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.

Does anyone know what was done or the setup described it's not clear what's going on seeing how the photos have expired.
