moss tree idea... help with moss questions please

New project. Working on putting together a 10 scape that resembles a tree. Iím sure I donít need to show pictures of what I want to do. But I have some basic questions about mossÖ

What type of moss is best for this? I am thinking Singapore or TaiwanÖ

Does moss need co2, high light and ferts? I just wanted to do around 1.5-2 watts/gallon and no co2 or ferts.

Would super glue work for attaching the moss to the wood?

Singapore/Taiwan would be fine for a moss tree. Moss doesn't need a very high tech set up, it should do fine with 2 wpg. I'm not so sure about superglue, I've had mixed experiences with it. You can tie moss to driftwood with cotton string that will eventually dissolve, or clear fishing wire that won't dissolve.
