I plan on adding drift wood, lava rock and tree to my planted aquarium. I like to have a nice carpet grow on them, something that won't overgrow and make it messy, something that will give a nice carpet feel to the tank.

Appreciate if you can give me names of the carpet plants and how do I stick them on the wood, rock and tree.

I do like any of the ferns and moss. not sure if we can have Glossostigma elatinoides or Micranthemum ‘Monte Carlo’ on them......

Some people take marimo moss balls and flatten them and put them on driftwood for a nice full look. Did you mean you like or dislike ferns and mosses? Will you be injecting co2? What type of lighting do you have? What size tank? Will you be adding ferts for the plants? Do you have a pic of your tank.

Fissidens moss if a good suggestion. US fissidens is what your after, is very small (easily under half an inch in height) and slow growing. Very pretty when you have a mature patch covering a large area.

Could also go with something a little different, like anubias (nana petite for example, or pangolino) or bucephlandra. crepidomanes sp. would also be another nice idea, most seem to max an inch in height.
