    Default Good plants/mosses on driftwood?


    0 Not allowed!
    I recently put a nice piece of malaysian driftwood in my 55g. I have a few plants already and want to really green it up.

    What are some good plants or mosses that will grow on the wood and which are the fast-growing ones?

    Thanks

    Java Fern and Java Moss are the 2 most common easy growers to put on driftwood.

    Christmas Moss and Anubias, Pennywort. Is this going to be low light- high light? Low tech to high tech? Ferts? CO2?

    Most plants that grow attached to wood grow slowly...
    Another beautiful plant that can grow on wood is the African fern, bolbitis heudelotii.

    I would go with either anubias or java fern I'm setting up my first tank also and both plants have done well. I just dose fertilizer and liquid CO2 in low light.

    I have Java moss on my drift wood and it will attach quickly, However you will want to tie it down at first, or place the moss under the wood and let it grow up around it.

    I did get a small amount of java moss and tied it to a few small rocks with the hope that it will start to cover the rocks and grow from there.

    If I put some moss under the driftwood, won't it need light to grow? Or does just some of it need to be exposed to the light? Right now I have some also on some sort of stick the pet store had it growing on.
