It works, better on wood or porous rock like lava rock, but it works. In the vid I don't know how he keeps the moss on the rocks when he fills it right away. Usually you have to dry start moss like that so it has time to attach before filling. Otherwise, it just floats away.
When I've done this with fissidens on wood, it takes about 2-3 weeks to attach. Way longer on rock.
Super glue is a good way to attach to rock, especially if you don't want to wait forever for the moss to attach. I find it is a bit of a crap shoot though. My experience has been that the moss goes through a dead phase wherever the glue touchs it. Then it miraculously re-appears when you've decided to do something else. I've not tried to glue chopped moss though.
