Java Moss on Polyresin Decor


I recently found a little hut at Petsmart made out of "rugged polyresin." I was thinking about attaching Java Moss to the top of the hut, but I'm not sure if it will attach one. Does anyone know if Java Moss, or any moss will attach on to polyresin?

Thanks in advance!

You can attach it using a small dab of crazy glue. Moss doesn't adhere very well on its own, even if you tie it on... not enough texture on the surface for it to grab hold, I think.

+1 java moss never really grabs on, it start to get stringy and grows upwards. The grows much nicer on real wood.

The top of the hut is fairly rough. I'll give it a try though. Would there be another kind of moss that would cling on better?
