Another moss wall!!!

So i went to home depot and orchard supply today to get some supplies for my moss wall background. I got some suction cups and some protective bird block mesh. The mesh is a little thin so IM kinda worried about that. IM going to use cable ties to hold it all together. While i was at orchard, i got the sweeeeeeeetest water change bucket too with wheels!!! I am very proud of it is this mesh OK for the wall though? Its kinda flimzy.

I think the other moss walls I've seen here have used craft mesh from from craft stores like michaels or ac moore

I think your mess is to big. It wouldn't be able to hold the moss together and give a uniformed look for a wall

I saw some people also that uses plastic mosquito net. I think also that the mesh you got is a little bigger than other mesh I saw. The spacing is wider and I am just worried that your moss will escape or just float away if it is not tuck in properly. That is just my opinion though.

So i just got the craft mesh a couple of days ago so i have everything now to build the moss wall except one thing, the moss. I need to find somewhere where i can buy a substantial amount of Christmas moss for relatively cheap. Any suggestions?
