Need Plant Ideas

Hey all I picked up a 10 gallon and a peice of drift wood I would like to attempt a tree. I am not sure what kind of moss I should use or if there are other options. I am looking for some to maybe hang like it does in trees in South Carolina, I think they call it spanish moss.

I am planning on putting some Blyxa Japonica, moss, and a carpeting plant, if you have any recommendation on a good carpeting plant let me know! And maybe some java fern to fill in around the tree if needed.

The pic is below let me know what you think!

Tank Specs:
2 x 13w 6500k I figure around 80+ PAR
DIY co2

Thanks for looking!

Dwarf sag <3 or maybe a Flame moss carpet. With some petite anubias on the wood or java fern. Maybe a moss wall? if you into that xD. maybe some stem plants to add a little red to the tank?

Weeping moss kind of droops down but to get it thick enough it would take quite a while. Most things do in this hobby however. Any moss would look great on it though.
