Fissidens splachnobryoides, aquatic or not???

So on this forum, I've been looking for ways to attach my mini fissidens to rocks. And on the aquascaping forum, there is a thread about it not even being aquatic, that it will just die! What's the scoop?

37 gallon community; 10 gallon S-SS CRS; 2x10 gallon guppies; Specialties: Japan blue guppies (wild type), Ginga sulfureus guppies, Blond platinum LS guppies with purple mutation.
Non-aquatics: Off-track thoroughbred racehorse; 2 Maine Coon-type cats; 2 fluffy house rabbits; 60 orchid plants.

well the general consensus is that it will grow underwater only after it grew its leaves emergent and does not grow aquatic version. Which mean its only semi aquatic and not true aquatic.

So they only growth you'll get out of it are in it's emergent phase, and after flooding there will be no more growth, yes? While in this stasis, can it even survive, or does it just slowly melt over the course of months?

no it can grow underwater but verrryyyy slowly, in the wild it grow emerge with occasional flooding, which explain why its emergent leaves look the same submerge.

This is the same for alot of semi aquatic fissidens.
