I have been searching near and far for a way to create the perfect moss tree.
1. I have posted this forum looking for a place to get the perfect piece of wood. Not much luck...
2. I've looked on ebay for a piece of wood and had some luck but nothing reasonably priced.
3. This website is probably the most promising lead I currently have: http://www.manzanita.com/index.htm
but still you never know what your gunna get while ordering online...
I am having the hardest time figuring out a way to create the perfect moss tree...
I am looking for something that looks similar to this piece here:
Then.. IT HIT ME... I suddenly had a great idea!
Even though I am probably over thinking this whole moss tree thing, I want it to look perfect and I need your input on my idea.
What if I mounted a circular flat rock about 1" thick and 6" wide on top of drift wood (2" thick) that looks like a tree trunk. Then hair net my moss (Ricca) to the rock.
Of course I will need to create a base to support all the upper weight, but I just wanted to see what others thought about this idea.
I have not seen this done anywhere on the internet and I wonder if it would look right. I have seen the Ricca hairnet-ed to circular rocks sitting on substrate and it looks perfect so why wouldn't this work?
Thank for your input and if you have any other ideas please... I insist.
