Hey, I'm a newbie, and I was just wondering if you can make java moss grow by just sticking it in the substrate? I use ADA Amazonia, and any advice would be helpful. Oh, and by the way, Newman, your bowl is awesome.

I don't think so...usually it is tied to a rock or wood

Maybe wood buried in the substrate?

Yes too many chain swords in here lol.

I started the tank out with a 11 or 13W CFL light. but yes the current ikea LED is good enough to keep the plants alive
hopefully the light doesn't burn out anytime soon.
It is still the same Ikea light btw.

we'll although Amazonia substrate will create nice water conditions for moss, and will stimulate it to produce more rhizoids (than in hard alkaline water), it is best to tie the moss onto DW or a rock and place the rock/DW onto the substrate. the moss can't be buried. you can use slate if you want a flat look. the moss will spread and eventually start attaching to the substrate too, but that will take a long time.

Hi Newman,

Very inspirational bowl. Based on this thread alone is why I started my very own bowl.
I noticed on the first post you mentions Dwarf Hair Grass. How did it do? Was it able to thrive, or has it given way to the much taller plants?

it definitely doesnt thrive. but I'm pretty sure its still in there in the undergrowth, shaded off by all the swords and sag. just a few blades of the grass here and there.

Hairgrass is a fine bowl plant though if given enough light, and less competition from taller plants.
