Christmas Moss

I got some Christmas I had ordered yesterday in the mail and was dry as a bone but still green so I put it in some water, will it be okay ? I have never had moss before and I am wanting to tie it to a rock decoration in my tank and on the top of the cave. Thanks ! Also my Hornwort turned brown and shed like crazy what a mess that was to clean up. My Anacharis is doing fine though very green and still growing.

it's pretty hard to kill moss, if it's still green it should be fine. i mean, if it looked like it retained some moisture inside the moss itself, it should be fine.

That's about how the moss I ordered from Malaysia looks right now. I have some weeping moss, pearl moss, and flame moss bunches, all with muddy brown patches. I think those parts might just die off and hopefully the rest of the plant will survive and then start to grow. I have snails to eat any dead stuff. I've tied them to pieces of driftwood. So far they're holding together, even the dead-looking parts. So there's hope lol.

I ordered some christmas moss. The store said they were located in california, but the box came from singapore. The moss was dead brown and black. Tried to revive it with no luck. Sigh.

Yours looks to be in way better condition than mine.

Thanks everyone is it still green and emailed the place I got it from which is also in Singapore and they said to put it in some water and watch if for a week so that is what I will do, they are always nice when I email them and said they will refund if it doesnt make it. Its called Aqua Magic and I ordered some IAL from them and while I was at it thought I would get some moss too and a Java Fern I ordered still hasnt got here yet, I hope it will be alright when it finally gets here.
