Mosses on tile

I've seen one reference to putting mosses on tile. I am guessing this is ceramic tile, bathroom stuff. Glazed side or the unfinished ceramic side? Would the moss attach to the glazed side?

Other than no water flow through or under the tile, any negatives?

Try getting some java moss and getting a rough stone and tying it down

Rough stone is so the moss has something to grip on

Tile is just a flat rock. Does it matter if it is glazed? I'm guessing since it attaches to stainless wire, shouldn't be an issue.

Slate would be a bit more natural looking if some peeks through the moss.
