Attaching moss to the hardscape - Yogurt method

Needed stuff:

Fissidens (about 30ml) and water (about 100ml) blend with blender:

As i need less mixture i filtrated it over the coffee filter bag:

In blended Fissidens put 30ml of RO water and one tsp of Acidofil - Acidofil is yogurt with Lactobacillus acidophilus bacteria whic is good to prevent fungus:

With that mixture paint the stones on desired spots:

And when finished cover the tank with transparent foil:

Spray it with RO water at least once a day. Do this for about 2 weeks and then flood the tank:

 After 2 more weeks new growth start to appear:

  1. Hi, does this technique work on lava rock also?

  2. Hey! Should i turn the lamp on in this time?

  3. Hi, yes, you can keep light on for 10-12h per day.

  4. Is it possible to do the same with a Marimo ball?

  5. I haven't try with Marimo. It is an algae and don't have rhizoids like moss so it can be a problem to stay on the hardscape after flooding.
