    Question mushroom problem

    Hi. I'm wondering if anyone would know how to attach mushrooms to rocks. for some reason I've got some mushrooms comming of a rock and floating away. I have other mushrooms that are staying put on the rocks they are attached to. Any help would be appreciated.

    Most people use wedding vale or netting to keep the mushroom from getting blown away so that it has time to attach to the LR rubble. Then you can glue the rubble rock to your LR.

    I have a little corral that I drop my mushrooms into. They stick to the coral sand in the corral then I crazy glue the coral sand to a rock. It only takes them a week or so to stick to the sand. I've never had any luck with either string or netting.

    If you don't have a corral to stick them into you can put them in a tupperware container with a bed of coral sand (to make it sink.) Put some toile (bridal veil) over the top with an elastic band.
