Growing Moss on Bogwood
 
Hi fellas,

Wow, it's been a long time since I made my last post here....

I was busy for the whole month of August, and also still busy, with my ongoing project. Been spending lot's of time building my backyard farm...anyway here's a new video I made on growing moss on bogwood. I was motivated to make a video of it coz of query from fellow hobbyist. Anyway it's on my blog, go check it out...

I strapped some java moss to driftwood a couple of months ago. At first it didn't look so great but now it looks wonderful. The video shows sewing thread, which works fine. I used fishing line, but I don't think it makes any difference. Great video!

hi MonsiuerPercy1, thanks for the comment :-D
yeap.....fishing line is also another good material use to tie aquatic plants :-)
I'm planning to start a nano moss only tank, using the species of moss I have......I will make a video on it, when I start my scape :-)

oh also do u take the string of when its stuck on? because if u dont im picking a color that looks natural. if u do take it off ill pick a bright color

I use fishing line also, as it's colorless.

Borneo, nice video, I always enjoy your "productions" :-D
Where does one get "spikey" moss? What species of moss is this??

I think it would be a little tedious to remove the string, coz once the moss starts to grow, they will attach to almost anything they touches, so I would rather leave it as it is......but I think in the end it would come to personal preference either to leave it or remove :-)

Here's one of my early moss on bogwood (this one is java moss)....once it starts to grow and spread, the string is totally covered. Same goes to the Java fern above :-)

Thanks for the compliment aunt:-D

Let's see....according to aquamoss.net...the scientific name for spiky moss is Taxiphyllum sp.
Aquatic Moss. How to grow Aquatic Moss. Info on Java Moss, Christmas Moss, Taiwan Moss, Peacock Moss, Stringy Moss

and I got the moss online from local hobbyist....haha, I've been obtaining my plants this way, ordering online, coz my LFS don't have much variety :|
