    Moss Plant ID

    Received this from a friend in the Philippines and he had no clue what it was. Suuuuupeeer slow growth. I've been growing this awesome looking moss since Oct 2017 from a tiny speck about 4mm from what i could save as most perished during shipment. Whatever you see there is everything I have managed to grow with minimal CO2. There's been months that I didnt run the CO2 as well. That is a full grown neo shrimp at the bottom of the pic and the plant next to it is Fissidens fox for size reference. Did my own research and leaning more towards mini weeping moss or java spring moss due to its slow growth and weeping pattern but I'm not 100% sure since I've never seen it before.

    Sorry for the sideways pic, unsure how to flip it

    Mini weeping moss and Java Spring Moss are the same moss. Here's some reference pics of it https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/3...ring-moss.html

    You do have a pretty neat looking moss though. Hopefully someone with a little more knowledge will chime in.
