I attached xmas moss to my wood using black thread a few months back and it's grown in wonderfully.


My issue is that it's uprooting itself/thread decaying and not staying attached to the wood. I was thinking about using fishing line to hold it in place more permanently but not sure that's the best method. I don't want to keep using black thread if it decays and the moss doesn't attach itself. I have to take out the wood to attach using string so I don't want to keep having to do this. On water change day it's a mess because all the moss gets little oxygen bubbles and it all floats up to the top of the tank.

So what are some tricks to keep it attached to the wood?
