Default milled fern tree and foam backgrounds

Anyone has used milled fern tree with silicone- foam background? I would use coco fiber, but I cant get it here, so Im thinking in use milled fern tree. I have used in another tank peat moss, but the one I get here comes with vermiculite, and the background doesnt looks great because the white parts of the vermiculite...

thanks in advance

I've heard of people using it - but not by itself.

I'd mix it with Peat Sphagnum (almost like dirt). Just mix the two up well.

The advantage with peat would be that moss spores are likely well mixed into it.

I'm sure you could use it by itself, and get similar results to using tree fern panels.
