how to carpet dwarf riccia?

i just got some in and i thought they had some what of a stem. I was wrong...they are in millions of lil pieces...how exactly do i tie this down to my wood or make a carpet out of it?

use mesh? and weigh it down? right now it just floats on top in pieces...i hate how when i need to fix something and i put my arm in its all over my arm!

I would float it for a while first - it will be very hard to attach is small pieces. Let it thicken up a bit then attach it to some mesh.

Float it until you get decent sized patches, then use mesh.
