    Oh, okay, yeah, I'd appreciate that a lot! I won't sell/share until I get your permission. I'll send you a PM.

    No one else can have this moss, don't ask unless you have something really good for trade

    I think the last/third one listed looks the best. I'd be interested in some down the road if you ever decide to part with more. All I got right now worth anything are a bunch of Crypt Striolata's


    How quickly does it grow compared to other mosses?

    That one is the slowest grower for me. I like OP best and finest but to each is own. Yeah I'll trade you down the road, mines been retied for about 2 weeks now, barely starting to grow.

    I took microscope pictures and Doctor of mosses said they weren't clear and needed an even more closeup which i haven't gotten the hang of focusing yet. Can't even get a shadow at that level. He said it appears to be java.


    I argued that it was from vietnam and that it grows differently and is thinner......and so on, not going to mention everythig


    He said that java does originate from Vietnam (the common one) and although this moss could be different it is a taxiphyllum


    I'm going to send it over for further study.

    What magnification are those pictures? If you need higher mag pictures I can probably help you out.

    It does look a lot like Java moss, Taxiphyllum barbieri. Java moss sometimes grows with smaller leaves and fronds but I don't know why that occurs. I've seen it grow this way in ADA system tanks. The Vietnam moss you sent me also has very similar growth patterns - they branch irregularly just like Java but has smaller leaves. I'll be putting it in the tank soon to see how it grows.

    Not a sales pitch but I am 99.9% sure. Would u like to bet wager gamble on it? Java moss being one of my very first plants, I just know. Frond width is thinner, eradick growth. I've grown java pretty uniformly starting in new growth then it gets all messy. This moss is different

    Here's java from you Sol, in my other tank, I'm going to transfer to high tech to see comparison. Also been lagging on sending to Professor. I'm just lazy as well as want to compile a few mosses to send him but not really, just lazy.


    If anyone needs a scientific name of their moss, go ahead to send to me and i'll send to professor, you must have a origin of the moss.

    Now told by a different guy, that this vietnam moss


    taxiphyllum barbieri


    could actually be


    taxiphyllum barbieri (insert subspecies here)


    this possibility gives me hope that its a different kind've moss than old boring java moss, i knew there was something up with these id's


    cause mini xmas does not grow like creeping moss in the same tank, although i have done so

    It's the same moss that Amano uses almost exclusive in most of his aquascapes. Just look at the ADA videos on YouTube.


    Also, the moss you gave me grows like regular Java moss, without the curling pattern as in your pictures.

    Hey SO there were a couple strands of similar looking moss in the plants you sent me. I salvaged them and tied to a small lava rock. Is that the same moss you're talking about here?

    So your thinking its a different type of java moss as well? describe as a type of java moss, that must mean its a different subspecies correct?


    What conditions are you growing in to get that pattern same as java, I know the initial look where it comes out straight and has a nice pattern (java) and then java gets all over the place once it starts growing all out. It would be nice if I can get that kind've growth. Same as java but more miniature. I've gotten it before I believe but let it keep growing out. Cause full grown L, I doubt it will stay that way unless trimmed

    It's probably just a regional form of T. barbieri, not a different species. It grows exactly the way you'd expect healthy T. barbieri to grow, under non-toxic trace conditions.
