Java moss is by the far the easiest moss I've encountered. Impossible to kill and grows well on wood.

Just got a hold of some mini xmass moss and I really like its look. I'm trying to grow it up the 3D wall of my 8g EBI tank like ivy on a brick wall. Gonna be a long road I'm sure lol.

I love my xmass moss. Just a wonderful leaf shape and color. I would like to try flame moss, never been able to find it.

Very cool site my friend!

But $60 for a pair of scissors ? That's more than ADA tools lol. They do have some stuff worth looking into though. Ever order equipment from them?

kinda looks like java moss to me. Java moss is my favorite as far as usability goes, the others don't seem to be as cooperative.
