    arrived healthy

    I was not too sure what to do with the gel substrate they arrived on. Some instructions would be helpful. I threw away the gel. placed the moss on drift wood hoping for it to attach itself shortly. Sitting well, but floating away at times when current gets too strong. Maybe I should have tied it to the drift wood?
