    So could you hide a sponge filter behind it?

    when using yarn to hold plants, get a shade of olive green.  Most plants have a certain amount of carotene in their leaves, which makes olive green or avocado a better color match.  Also, I would start the yarn through from the back, place the plant right next to it, start the yarn as close to the other side of the stem as possible for the return stitch then make the knot on the back side of the sheet.  That way, you have the minimum amount of yarn on the front, and if you have to let the yarn show, as you did on that Java fern, it will be less obtrusive.

    why would you use yarn when you could use invisible fishing line

    Wouldn't superglue work for attaching plants?

    The key to the moss walls is to keep trimming the moss down.   It'll spread out faster and let the lower down mosses get some light as well. :)

    Love this idea. Also would make a great place for any fry or baby shrimp to hide.
