    Is there a "best" moss for a moss wall?

    I was thinking of using Taiwan...or possibly a combination of mosses.
    Just wondering if there was a best kind of moss to do the wall?

    There may be a few I'd avoid as a moss wall. Java moss, for one. Or anything with a spikey or stringy texture. Other than that, they all make nice walls. I've even seen one set up that was done using subwassertang. Just pick the moss you like best or what you can get in a good quantity.

    avoid java moss if possible. it's very stringy.

    I found the subwassertang wall pic I'd saved. Don't remember the source though (sorry). It's just starting to grow in there.

    Once I get some time to play around with mosses, again... I'm going to try it.
