Anybody have any advice on what type of moss to use to attach to driftwood in a high temperature tank (82 deg Discus tank)?

Xmas moss seems to do well.
Same with Java.

Wonder if anyone with experience can give me a bit of advise regards Moss and higher temp tanks (I'm close to 86 even to 90 F on some days) - the most problem I have is that the java moss seems to stop growing and hence algae (green + BBA) keep breaking out on the moss. Biggest headache in my tank.

Similarly the bolbitis refuses to grow but this I kind of expected. Java ferns are very slow but some leaves are sprouting after the old leaves have now decayed or trimmed.

Rest of the plants tenellus, blyxa, rotala rotundifolia, vallisneria nana, JHG are thriving like weeds.
