How to get nice carpet
Was wondering how people get a nice carpet of moss.. I have fluorite subtrate but don't if it would work. Would only work with sand subtrate or attach it to some mesh.. I would like to try this out and see how I do.. Thanks

I use the mesh from aquatic magic, i find it better than the metal mesh most people use, its cheaper, sinks just as fine, and the black looks better than bright silver.

I just used plastic regular craft mesh, but unfortunately, it doesn't sink very well, so I would advise against it. Whatever mesh you do use, cut two sheets into the shape you want, and then sow three sides with fishing line. Push in bits of moss and spread it around, then sow the fourth side closed. Worked well enough for me.
