I had to weight the moss down with large pieces of gravel to get it to attach to my wood. My lighting is also less than 1 watt per gallon so maybe that could be it? I am upgrading my light soon though so maybe that will help.
@sik80, I wish i had some christmas moss, that stuff looks amazing, but very pricey.
A friend of mine noted that the java moss was growing like staghorn algae except green and... mossy.
