Smile Java Moss /Baby Tear

I can't seem to find these guys at the LFS... I've been offered moss balls, but I'm looking to create a wall/carpet.... any links or places around Houston I can drive to? I don't mind ordering online, I just don't know where to order from. Figured someone may have a certain website they have used and like.....

i know you can make it from the plastic mesh sheets walmart sells in there crafting/sewing sections. spread out the moss inside then sandwich it with another sheet and then zip tie the edges

Thanks!! I ended up going to a different LFS and spoke with one of the guys there who said they rarely get java moss. Ended up selling a java moss ball for $4. Think I'm gonna let it just grow wild and then hope to start my wall then I also picked up some pygme chain sword.... hopefully it will latch on to my gravel subtracted and make its carpet.

Have you reached out to anyone in the Greater Houston Aquarium Club? They are a great group in Houston, and they have a meeting scheduled for this weekend. I would think these plants would be readily available from their club members. https://www.facebook.com/groups/434360536674532/

Details on their Saturday meeting:

I found them on FB, and saw their event post this evening. Wish I would have gotten online sooner to see it! Would have been super awesome to attend and meet a few fellow people!
