You get a plastic mesh.... and you sandwitch the moss betwween them, than y ou use fishing string to tie the 2 sheets of mesh together. (or small zipties that have not steel in them) than you lay it on the bottom of the tank and let it grow. It will grow thur the holes and fill in. I say to lay it on the bottom of a tank so that it fills in evenly at first... If you put it on the side right away it seems that sometimes the top fills in more rapidly than the bottom. I have a java moss wall in the tank and I did take pictures of the process. As soon as I can have the wife fine them I will post a DIY topic.

alot of people use plastic craft mesh, place the moss evenly around it and then use thread/fishing line to tie it down. With good ferts, high light and CO2 it grows in alot faster but with patience it can fill out in a lower tech setup.

edit: doh! didn't read through the replies after I looked at the link :)

You can get plastic mesh even at Walmart or the like.....
