Default Hygrolon on background related question

Hi there,

this is my first post on the forums. Although I have found some similar topics, I cant the definite answer to the problem I am currently facing.

I have a 36x36x18 exo terra. First I have coated the backside and half of both side with a thin layer of black silicone. After three days of curing I made the foam + driftwood/cork bark background. I am close to finishing scraping and details. The foam I have used is ment for contact with drinking water.

Is it necessarily to coat all the scraped foam and little gaps between the wood and foam with silicone before gorilla glueing Hygrolon on it?

Should the Hygrolon be in touch with the water in the false bottom to ensure great moss growth on the background? Or is regular misting system gonna take care of it?

Thanks for your long term experiences and answers you might give me.
