Another member of the forum asked the fastest way to grow java moss. There were great suggestions towards growing it emersed but moist.

What is the advantages of growing it emersed and why does it grow fast?

I would assume that it grows better because it gets all the CO2 it could ever need from the air. Also, it gets more light yet stays moist. It also can avoid getting smothered in algae.

I've also noticed that my emersed moss has started growing those little spiky reproductive do-dads... (I really should take a botony class next semester)

Emersed is always cheaper and faster to grow...since your going to use organic rich soil, high C02 in the air, and lots of light; you get better results. It's cheaper in that there's almost no care, except for water required...since flowers will appear, you can easily propogate the plant.
