Java Moss

Another method that works very well, and looks good very quickly is to
staple the Java Moss to the driftwood with a staple gun.  The staples rust
in a couple of days, and are no longer visible.  We did this with great
success attaching HUGE quantities of Fontinalis to driftwood for the
"ponds" exhibit at the New England Aquarium.
