how to make a moss cave
I have recently placed a halved clay pot in my 90 gallon tank. I would like to use java moss create a moss cave. How do i secure the moss to the pot and facilitate its growth? Am i breing reasonable? Is this a possibility? any help would be appreciated

Just use fishing line or yarn and it should be a piece of cake. Java moss has sometimes even attached to glass.

Will the moss attach to the pot? am i being realistic, or am i just hoping here. If it works it should look pretty cool

another way is to place the pot on a shallow tray, arrange the moss, put a small amount of water in the tray, cover with a clear glass bowl and place near a north facing window.
It will take the moss about a month to become attached to the pot, keep water in the tray and mist the moss occasionallyAs I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

You can silcone some of your substrate to the clay pot. I have pots with both sand and stones glued on. Java moss will attach to it easier if it's a rough surface.
Silcone needs to dry two days.
