Growing moss


I have this piece of moss and would like to grow more out of it. How do I achieve that?

Looks like sheet moss. You should mist it daily and cover with saran wrap to keep the humidity around 70%. If it doesn't feel soft and squishy add more water, if it turns black-ish let the moss air out a bit. If you want add a tiny layer of packed soil underneath.

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.
