Java Moss Lament

Recommended Posts

I've never had much luck growing Java moss but I have with Christmas moss and I expect it's much the same. I have some tied down to a rock and regularly trim it to try to keep it in some kind of shape. It doesn't prevent it from scattering a few pieces but it's manageable. Although I do agree with @ChrisD mosses are kind of their own monster. They make the rules.

Java moss will definitely do what it wants - I have it growing up the back glass panel in one of my tanks, even after I thought I had removed it all. Your best bet is to do as others suggested, tie it to a rock and keep it trimmed. And collect all those trimmings, because they will stick to SOMETHING and go where they want, lol.

I personally enjoy just letting it grow in a clump in a back corner.
