Cut up moss ball

I want to put small peices all over driftwood, do you think it'll survive?

Yes it will survive. Moss balls survive independently. The individual pieces will grow at a rate of 5 cm a year

How do you get it to stick to the driftwood? Would you tie it with thread till I roots in?

I heard it doesn't root in, you just tie it with fishing line and it eventually grows until it's unoticeable

I'm not sure if these will upload sideways or not so sorry if they do! It's hard to tell from my phone.

The first one is my driftwood with a small piece of Marimo tucked into a hole.

The second picture is about a month later. It's not exactly what you're thinking of doing but it might give you an idea of how fast it might spread.

Hrm. Double posted. I'm terrible at doing this from my phone. I'll get the laptop next time. Sorry the first is so blurry. I didn't have any other older photos that focused on that portion.

Anyway, very minute growth but it does grow!
