I seem to never have luck with mosses. What was the reasoning on chopping it up? Does it help it to regrow? Is this the step I'm missing?
Looks great! Btw.
I got the idea from Amano. The idea is that it’s easier to plant which turned out to be true. Others blend it in a blender and mix with water. They use a brush to “paint” the moss mix on. I figured with the porosity of the epiweb, cutting it wild he sufficient. Wish me luck!

Some pics after they were planted. I wrapped the roots of both in some sphagnum peat moss after the dirt was washed off and they were placed in the corners. I hope these grow out the way they are intended to.

Just have to get some air plants for the high branches and some anubias/bucephelandra for the rocks/wood that are submerged.
