The large frond above the moss is Selaginella. I have that, too (as of last week). However, unless Selaginella grows underwater in fish aquariums for 10 years, it's not Selaginella that is growing in my terrarium . . . because I simply pulled out a large clump from an aquarium to get it started. Indeed, java moss has small leaflets growing off of the main "thread". It gets much more thich and "moss like" when grown on the substrate, and it grows very quickly (it's overtaking some of my Dicranium moss right now).

If my digital camera had any sort of focus adjustment or macro capabilities, you could see in this pic that it looks just like the stuff sold by Black Jungle. Maybe it's something different that looks just like it. Either way, $13 seems a bit stiff for a 10" x 10" square of the stuff when you can buy either Selagenella or a starter clump of Java for about $2.

:Its not java. Java looks more like fine threads then their moss. Are you shore you don't have Selaginella? It looks more similar to their moss then Java moss does ..to me at least.
