I'm not sure its Taiwan seems a lot like christmas/peacock/singapore.

Taiwan is more fleshier and has shorter leaves compared to the 3 other mosses I mentioned above.

Please take a full leaf specimen place it on a white paper, focus on the leaf. take a close photograph n upload the picture.

A clear n close picture can help us to ID the moss.

It can be hard to tell as moss will grow so much differently in different conditions and light intensities.

Moss often times gets mixed in with one another. I propose this is normal Xmas with Taiwan growing in it.

It could just be the shading or the way the moss appears, but that's what it looks like to me.
