Planted Floor and Walls

I was reading another forums. I know. I know. Traitor.

Anyway, I ran across a couple of really interesting articles on creating carpets and walls using moss. Some are pretty cool looking. Anyone here done anything like this?

I had a Christmas Moss carpet in my tank for the longest of times until I ripped it all out one day cause I just got tired of it. Looked good but grew too fast!

How did you manage it? Did you just trim it? I'd imagine pulling on it would create "bald spots" in the floor.
