    I've made an article on how to make your own roots/branches - take a look if you're in need of roots/branches you'll cover with moss anyway :-p

    Hey, what do you think of coconut husks? Would they hold up or is underwater rotting an issue?

    I dunno about Coconut husks... I don't think rotting is that big a deal, but I haven't tried it... Perhaps I should ;-)

    Topic moved, checked that link doesn't work any more and I would appreciate if you would upload those pictures to ASW instead of linking outside, as you see that links brake and stuff will disappear after a while and there will be no chance for somebody to check later. thanks

    Tropica sell coconut shells with moss and ferns on and that and they actually look pretty good, not sure how long they last but I bet it's a good deal longer than most scapes.

    How quickly would the moss attach to it? White would be a bit of an eye sore.

    I have used this technique in a previous scape of mine. You can use black filter wool also, that is what I did.

    Here you can see it after I first planted it.

    Tip: The more tightly and close you wrap it together the less "fuz" you will get. I wrapped it so there was no filter wool sticking out.
