Hmm, makes me wonder if mine are real. They are from aquatic magic in Singapore. I thought they'd be soft but they're kind of bristly. They haven't grown though!

Sorry i didn't read everyone’s response so i hope i don't repeat...
But i learned that to quarantine hardy plants in tap water NO conditioner for 2-3 or more weeks. Now some plants will die not sure about Moss ball,but wisteria died. Sword,java lived.

As for parasites they will die without host. Not sure about other disease

I've read that the real moss balls are slow-growing. I'm pretty sure my moss balls are real, and they are firm and a bit bristly. I squeeze them out when I do a water change.

(It occurs to me that this topic could be taken the wrong way if you took out the word "moss"!)

@Tamyu: Yeah, I am unsure if mine are 100% real. They're not in direct sunlight though, I put them near the window but the blinds are turned upwards. I only put them there because I figured they were like regular plants. They're okay in my betta tank though D:

I always quarantine mine for about 4 or 5 days before putting it in the tank. I simply put it in a container with some tap water. No need to treat it before. It's just in case theres a snail or something hiding in it.
