Hi all
Trying out doing a moss tree for the first time :laugh2:

I got some Taiwan moss from the LFS
His advice was to just lay it out on tree and as I was dry starting it would attach itself.

I have been misting every day and running lights for 12 hours
There is growth so I am reasonably happy.

The questions I have is
1) how long would be normal to dry start with moss?
2) how can I be sure it is attached to the tree?
3) what would be the expected growth rate ?

I started this 3 weeks ago here is a couple of pics last one taken today

Thanks in advance :laugh2:

Sorry having problems uploading pictures

Bump:

also you won't have to deal with much debris in the moss if you set everything up and then place in last

i did a dry start with java moss. i chopped it into small pieces with a knife, then just applied it to the surface with my finger. flooded the tank after 2 weeks, all the pieces were attached.
