A couple hitchhikers

During a recent order planting I noticed a couple extras which I would like to identify:

This guy looked mossy so i tied it down to a piece of slate and it exploded


This one looked interesting so I just shoved it in the substrate in the front of ny tank to keep an eye on it. Since adding diy co2 it has tripled in size




Sorry about quality phone is only camera i have

I think the second one is a Banana plant.

The second one looks like a banana plant sans the characteristic bananas
happens often honestly, not sure if they will grow the bananas back but treat them like you would any other dwarf lilly

i agree with the plant being banana but no clue on the moss, maybey Java? it seems it's a common type of moss

Does not look like Java moss, but I can't tell if it is stringy moss or not.
