The wood is just driftwood so it's technically dead. The green portion is just Taiwanese moss that was tied down with a mesh. It's a great cs ter piece if you know what to do.

If you need any help just let me know. The cost to do this one was roughly $200

That looks incredible, but that’s pretty expensive for some driftwood and moss.

The bonsaI tree is made up of driftwood. Driftwood is cheap but someone put the time to make it look like a tree. The moss portion was just 15 golf ball size to cover every spot.

yeah that piece doesnt even look like driftwood! I thought it was a real mini tree lol so i bet it was pretty expensive. I feel I could pull this off with spiderwood maybe.... not sure but want to try. Do you know what type of moss that is? Would any moss work? I have 0 experience with moss but always wanted some!

The moss I used was Taiwanese moss and that's 3 months of growth. It's really easy to do. Also, do not use moss balls. It looks like trash to me, but others find it pleasing.
