Christmas moss grows 'branchy' whereas Java moss grows more 'strandy'.
Christmas moss is a slower grower and requires more lighting than Java moss.

Okay. Then how does the Java moss stay on the plants cause I look at the Java moss and I've tried everything to put it on anything but it's like so stringy that It doesn't stay put!

You can cut up a bath puff and use the mesh to wrap it around objects.

But what happens to the mesh when the moss grows?

The wrap will just be there intertwined with the moss. If you use a neutral color, like a dark color or green, you won't see it once the moss gets established.

The reason I asked which you meant is because there is more than just Christmas Moss and Java Moss lol, I was confused on what you meant.
