Soon-to-be java moss tree

I got in a wonderfully giant bunch of java moss yesterday, and in a separate shipment I received this fantastic piece of driftwood. I feel I have no choice but to try to fashion a java moss tree with it; its shape is too perfect for it!

I have some nicely branched dead branches from my woods soaking, and I will go get a hairnet tomorrow and try that method of attaching the java moss. Have any of you successfully crafted a tree with java moss and driftwood? Have any advice for me?

Sounds like it will look awesome!

I've found that simply wrapping the moss around something is enough to get it to attach.

If you want the moss to be the leaves of the tree, so to say, then you could attach a floating ball of some sort to the top of the stump, with fishing line. Rubber band the moss to the ball and it will grow out in all directions, suspended in the water over the stump.

Careful with hairnets, I had about a 5 inch rainbow shark get his fins caught up in the netting. I actually had to remove the fish from the tank by hand to get it loose. It did survive though.

I've done it... with peacock moss. java moss gets a bit messt for me. I do recommend you to turn the drift wood over if you can as the ofher end looks more like "branches" ans will help give the spread out tree look.

I use black cotton thread to anchor moss,
