Attach the moss on the top side of the branches, also put small portions, don't over do it.

If I wrap the Christmas moss around the branches would it become bushier?

Or am I forced to super glue it like on the video above? The reason I don't want to super glue it is because I was told it kills the moss where it comes in contact with glue..

Or should I just place thin amount on the top part of branches and tie it down?

Will update

Fishing line working well when out of the tank. Wrapping the moss around the branch will not help much in bushy appearance as the undersides will die from lack of light.
The moss does die where superglue hits it but the live portion will attach by the time the superglue dissolve. I use a lot of superglue for my moss, A lot!

I just attached the moss on the top side of the brand with fishing line. Cotton sowing strings also work. I've never tried the super glue, it's a bit mess and may kill the moss.
