Have you monitored the temp in teh cup? I tried this once in a glass bottle that is about 16oz and it received direct sun at least more than 7 hours and got warmer than what Java moss would grow at. Might be something to consider if you try it again. I used a strand and it also failed. I was using old tank water as the only nutrient source and too much direct sun had algae over taking it.
