How do I plant Java Moss on a rock?

I want know how I can plant Java Moss on my fish tank rocks which are in the water?

Please help urgently,

remove the rock from the aquarium,attach the moss with either sewing cotton
or use fishing line.but secure it quite tightly so no fish can become intangled
it's not a nice thing to see !

Can I stick it between two rocks where the fish can't get it so it grows out from there?

you can try that yes.

how long does it take to attach?

willow 12-29-2010 03:31 AM

oh,i don't know to be honest,i've only done it using the sewing cotton.
maybe a week ?
Byron will probably know.
