    there are a couple diff ways to do java moss, you could just let it float (but chances are it would begin to spread fairly quickly) You could using some fishing line to strap it to a rock. you can also attach it to a coconut shell

    use cotton sewing thread, by the time the thread rots the moss will have attached. Spread it in a thin layer
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    I have had this stuff for a few months now and really haven't noticed it "growing" I had to cram it in a hole on my driftwood in order for it to stay. My "duh almost blond moment" never thought of fishing line. Anyhow my clump is still well a clump so maybe next month when I get a chance I can spread it out a bit like that article suggests on my driftwood and secure it. On the other hand my anubia has a death grip on my pot and it wont let go!!! lol and it floated on there on accident cuz my snail was re-decorating.
    Hugs and gl!
