does the moss adhere to the wood? Weeping does not....unfortunately I can't identify it further with my limited knowledge.

The weeping moss I have grows differently than that- the "branches" of it grow downward, or "weepy". Now, the peacock moss I have grows about like yours in the pic does, but I can't say for sure that's what you've got. I find mosses a bit difficult to ID.

Can't say for sure what kind it is but I know it's not weeping-definitely need a close-up

Looks exactly like my FISA's weeping moss. Not sure if that was ever properly ID'd or not.

Weeping moss sometimes does not weep. You do need a closer shot.

easiest way to identify moss is an entire shot and a super closeup showing the shape of the tiny leaves.
