Re: [APD] Vesicularia dubyana (Java Moss)

Are we talking about Java Moss (/Taxiphyllum barbieri/) or Singapore 
Moss ( /Vesicularia dubyana/)?  [The taxonomists have done it to us 
again, but the end result is the same.]

Both types tend to produce clumps, rather than carpets. IMO, they are 
probably not suited for what you want to do.
