A special moss originally seen in Japanese aquariums and known as ''Amazonia Willow Moss''. Also called ''Christmas tree moss'', because of its side branch structure which distinguishes it from ordinary Vesicularia dubyana and looks like fir tree branches. It is more demanding than ordinary Java moss and grows more slowly. It attaches readily to roots and stones, and as it spreads in the water it needs pruning to keep its shape attractive. [TROPICA]

Hrm, this moss seems to be doing well in my low-tech 30 gallon. I just left it floating in a net for now, until there's enough for it to cover my entire piece of driftwood. Pretty nice (:

I wanted the weeping moss that hangs. I got this sent to me instead. I found this moss To grow really fast with good light and some excel. I attached it to a branch and it's ground like a weed. A very nice plant even if it was not what I ordered.
