What kind of moss is this?

Adam510

Hey I just bought this moss at my LFS, he said he didn’t know what type of moss it is.
I know some subwassertang is in there but not much.

I want to say Java moss but I could be wrong haha. I’m not the best at identifying moss.

I’m leaning that way but I almost thought maybe Christmas moss so I just want to know cause it could change how I plant it. Thank you tho!

I think this is Christmas Moss. Christmas moss grown in 'low tech' conditions looks like this.
The fact that there is also subswassertang (another 'low tech frndly' plant) supports this idea lol

Okay I want to plant it on driftwood that’s in a tree shape, how should I plant it?

Use aquascaping glue on broader portions. U can use nylon string to tie on narrow branches or simply glue it.

Its not java moss. I can assure you that. Java moss is very stringy.

Most likely is christmas moss, but without seeing how it grows underwater its pretty hard. It might be flame moss too, but I still think christmas.

No no do not use any glue u find. Aquascaping glues are available in the market. In case u r not able to find it u can use super glue. But in my experience Aquascaping glue is best

Fluval has glue for plants that you can get online. Petco also sells it I believe. Just look for aquarium plant glue.

I've been using just supper glue for yrs. [never any problems] it's cheap and it works.

Going to be honest, look at 'aquascaping glue' and if it says "cyanoacrylate" in the ingredients, its over-expensive glorified superglue. Superglue has cyanoacrylate in it.

So yeah, go buy yourself some normal gel superglue from Dollar General (because we all know they are on every corner now) and save yourself $10 lol.
