Hi, James,

Thanks for pointing out that it's a capsule and not a spore.
The capsules appear on the mosses too when they are grown submerged but not
as much as when the moss is grown emmersed.  Although I only sent the mosses
that were grown submerged in my tanks, chances are that the folks who
received the moss will see some of these capsules if they look closely.

By the way, I hate to point this out but my name is Kwek Leong and not Loh
Kwek.  I'm not too concerned about plant names but I can get a bit fussy about
human names.  Wouldn't like the idea of anyone identifying me wrongly :)

Loh K L
PS:  Loh is the family name.  Kwek Leong is the name.
