has anyone tried to use this method to grow lawn or carpet of moss on the bottom by stringing multiple ropes on the ground?

Why not just use stainless steel mesh to carpet moss on the ground? You'd have to secure the rope in multiple areas whereas the stainless steel mesh weighs itself down.

Just ordered me some steel mesh and mosquito netting to try this..
About the rope, is nylon the way to go? Is that what last the longest under water before it "crumble" to pieces?

Nylon hasn't broken down for me, or at least to any noticeable extent. http://www.strictlyfish.net/tropical...uarium-carbon/ takes SUPER long for nylon to degrade in a freshwater aquarium.
