OK, so I was wondering how you attach java fern to driftwood or rocks. I've heard of a lot of people attaching their java fern to these, and it sounds sorta cool. Also, where do you get Java Moss? Can't find it anywhere. How would you attach that to driftwood?

I got my java moss from another member here.  I have also seen it for sale online.  I didn't really attach mine to my wood, but sort of slid it sideways to get it caught in a few places.  It is starting to attach a bit.  Some people use thread to tie it on... same with the fern. 

I am actually glad my moss is not better attached.  It seems to catch and hold onto everything in the tank and requires a bit of shaking out during my water changes.

I use 6lb test green fishing line. It holds the plant firmly down so it can attach better and blends in nicely. I have gotten java moss on aquabid, but have never seen it at a LFS in my area.

Try asking for java moss in the trading post section of the forum. I just sent most of mine out so I won't have more for a while, but someone else is bound to have some. That stuff grows like crazy.

I tried fishing line and it wouldn't knot well so I used sewing thread and it works great on my java fern!  After a while the thread will harmlessly rot away.

I have never had any java moss.
