You can use two pieces of mesh to sandwich the moss together and then just tie the two pieces of mesh together. That should be easier than tying the moss to the mesh directly.

If we do that then it costs us an extra piece of mesh. What can we substitute the 2nd piece with?

I was not aware this was going to be an issue.

I suppose cyanoacrylate would work too, but it would be messier.

You can use the plastic mesh stuff, if you take apart one of those bath scub poof things.
they are like a dollar and you get a bunch out of one poof. You cut it into piece you need and done!

to expand on what h4n stated...i use the "bath poof". put the moss on the stainless mesh and wrap a piece of the plactic poof around it and tie it together on the back. it works great. You can also use the same method using rocks instead of stainless steal mesh
