Yoghurt method experiment
[/B]Got some fissidens fontanus from someone. Trying out the yoghurt blender method to attach mosses on my lava rocks.

More info about this see

Waterlogging all pieces hopefully they will not dry completely out during my dry start to attach mosses to hardscape.

To be more safe to avoid floating spiderwood I zip tied spiderwood pieces to a piece of slate. These will be buried in the substrate. So far it seems promising as pieces sink immediately in a bucket.
