Sure, wrap it around some pcv pipe or something, should be pretty straight forward.

Epiweb looks a lot like sheets of synthetic aquarium filter pads which is making me wonder if there are other readily available products out there which could be used in place of epiweb. I know people have used felt for living walls before, would that work in a viv? Thoughts?

I've never worked with Epiweb so this is hearsay, but I've heard it really doesn't hold water very well. If that's true, it will be very difficult to establish live moss on it like in the picture. The picture looks like carefully placed decorative moss which would quickly turn brown in a viv.

Many people are doing something kind of like this with ropes and twines of varying thickness, coated in silicone, and covered in coco fiber. Sorry, but I don't have any of those threads bookmarked. Anybody else have any good threads handy for this method?

there is a pump at the bottom of that vine structure constantly pumping water up to the top via tubing. Moss will grow great if the epiweb stays wet.

Like I said earlier, I've seen people take tubing and wrap the ecoweb/epiweb/scrubbing pads around and stitch it together with a fishing line or similar. I don't have any threads saved but I'll see what I can find with a search.

Ahh, the pump/drip feature would make all the difference.

I came down to the conclusion that is almost impossiable to buy Epiweb, but not Ecoweb.:D

Now i just need to figure out how to make branches and cover it with ecoweb?

Any threads on this

Eco web is almost exactly epiweb just a different name. Again its not cheap. Use a heat gun and bend pvc pipe. Then cover it with ecoweb
