Moss ID


So,
I grow plently of different kinds of mosses and I can't seem to figure out what moss this is.

Doesn't looks like anything I grow. And it came in mixed with some other mosses I bought.

Let me know what you think!

Thanks

A correction its Sis I am a woman, wife, mom

Yes I'm a moss collector n yes its a serious collection. I have Riccardia chamedryfolia-coral moss forgot to mention and abt. to receive 5-6 species I dont own right now.

No I do not sell coz as I've mentioned I'm a collector its a hobby. There are a few serious hobbyists in Israel I exchange with. Its a barter system for mosses. Its not for money and believe me I know how much they are worth all around the world for serious hobbyists.

Also I'm out of US so u cannot buy plants from me coz they'll confiscate the shipment n u'll get a visit from the custom authorities.

if there is a alot of plants it must be sold or given as a gift. Because new aquarists need them. Maybe som of them dont have enough money or other conditions... The most beautiful thing is given gift...

Hahah Walmart guy.
It looks different from my Singapore moss I have.

Another mistake! Didn't see that you were in Israel. Can't order stuff from over there to over here.
