Comments

Stumps obtained from local creek as the local city excavated for new storm sewers, cut stumps into pieces and boiled each piece for 4 hours, then reassembled with wood screws after drilling guide holes so wood would not split. Attached java moss using micro-filament 4lb fishing line simplified by melting clear thumb tacks and then having the fishing line attach to the melted plastic. This made wrappping the fishing line to the stumps much easier. Trying to tie it on was tedious! After the moss attaches on it own, I will remove the fishing line and trim the moss close to the stumps. I used clear office supply wall pocket organizers with pop-riveted plexiglas on back to build substrate wall on rear glass that protruded only 4 inches of depth. This allowed the broadleaf shorter lutea to range to water surface.
