Attachment 633714Here's my spec V. Its an ongoing work in progress!
Apparently attaching files is also a work in progress. For the life of me, I can't get this turned around!

Heres my spec. No mods at the minute but I will soon have a better light and pressurised co2 to get the carpet nice and thick.

I fill a bucket about 1 or 2 inch of water. I cut up the moss in tiny bits and wet the wood and put the moss as smooth and even as I can on the surface. You don't want clumps because it may block light for bottom moss to attach and grow. I then mist the inside of the bucket and cover the bucket with clear plastic wrap and also mist the plastic wrap to create a humid environment. Essentially you doing a sort of a dry start method for moss attachment. The moss will get more Co2 from the atmosphere and attach quicker. As for lighting I have done indoors and outdoors. For outdoors you want to place it in the shade. Direct sunlight will dry it up too quick. As for indoors I have use a low light lamp. Depending on the moss it takes about 2 weeks - 6 weeks.
Also you need to mist it every day if your location is dry but if its more humid you can mist it every other day. Good luck and I hope I answer your questions.
I think you can add very little ferts in the water bottle to speed the process and if you want more Co2 in the bucket you can use greenpads which is a pad that release Co2 when moist.
I recommend the greenpad to speed up DSM methods. Works like a champ.
But patience is always the key. Hope that helps
The plant is baby tears or pearl weed. The round and narrow leaf are the same. I have round leafs in my emersed set up outdoors. I place them in the shade. I think it has to do with extra Co2 long photo periods since it looks like you inject and have a better lighting then me. I don't use inject Co2 in my tanks and I wouldn't consider my light has high par values. My photo periods are about 6-7 hours.
I can take a picture of round leaf baby tears if you really want to see them all round.

I boil the wood to help waterlogged it and release tannin, then I tied it to a rock and place it in back of my toilet tank water reservoir to continuing to help waterlogged it and release any extra tannin with each flush.
So once i ready to aquascape the wood sink like rocks and doesn't color the water with tannins. Just place them in the substrate and they stay upright. The wood is saw flat on both ends.
Hope that helps.
