    0 Not allowed!
    i bought some java moss yesterday. i put half on some driftwood and the other i want to put on some fake rocks. they are concrete fire place rocks, the fake field stone that masons put on chimneys, but before i do i want to make sure that it will root in.

    thanks
    Dustin

    Sure will, Java moss will attach to anything even glass. Actually they should be better than most real stone due to the rough surface. Spread a thin layer of moss and wrap with sewing thread

    Yep. Mine took hold of the fake rock cave I have in my community tank in about a month. It looks like a mass of crazy hair now!! But....I like that look apparently. :)

    One bit of advice, don't let it get over 4" of growth, it will shade the bottom and die losing the grip on your rock. Pull some off or take it out and trim with scissors

    I occasionally give my a hair cut by trimming it up. Seems to work great and doesn't mess w/ the look of it really either. I try to keep it about 3" high.

    Also, about your rock/ stone, did you do the vinegar test on it to make sure its not limestone? limestone rocks can mess w/ your water chems and can mess up the PH in the tank. Just FYI.

    Same w/ this thread.... isn't this thread in the wrong sub forum? If I'm not mistaken, Java Moss is not a rhizome plant. Its a moss. Am I wrong?
