Driftwood plants

I have two pieces of driftwood now and have successfully grown Java moss on them in the past, but would like to add something better. Perhaps a more ascetically pleasing moss. I know Java fern, anubias, HC, baby tears, and glosso apparently can attach but what are the pros growing on their drift wood when they have those small "ball" patches nicely trimmed? Any advice would help. I see lots of pictures but no labels for what plant/moss that is. Lastly, which driftwood attaching plants/moss are best for moderate lighting with no CO2? I'm currently dosing "liquid CO2" and ferts, which isn't ideal, but will have to suffice for a little bit.

hmm, I think Christmas moss looks good on driftwood, also fissidens. Anubias is always a go to as well as java fern for attaching to driftwood. If you are wanting moss, google "aquatic mosses" and you should see all the types there is Christmas moss, flame moss, java moss, fissidens, riccia (which is really more of a floater,) also search "types of mosses" in this forum and you will see tons.
