Gluing moss???

I just ordered some fissidens fontanus. Last time I tried this moss it ended up all over the tank and I basically lost it all. I've heard you can glue it to driftwood. Could someone give me any tips? I also thought about using a hair net.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Superglue Gel (Cyanoacrylate) is a pretty good way to attach Fissidens. If you search the forum, you'll find a few tutorials and will see some great examples.

Dab the glue on, plop some moss on it, let it set for a few. Moisture helps the glue cure. It's tank-safe.
