Best Moss For a Moss Wall

I recently picked up a fluval chi wicked cheap, and i want to do the rear glass as a moss wall. I was gonna do fissidens and recently purchased some, and as that would look great i think it will take forever to grow in. its 10x12 so im looking for peoples input on what moss might work better and look great. No java moss. Im thinking flame moss or willow moss. But what do people think?

WHen I did my wall it took forever so I ended up growing a huge ball of java moss in 10 gallon tank and just gluing patches onto some weavers netting that was green.

Making videos about fish stuff, and fixing things:

I've never done willow or flame, only xmas.

IMHO, xmas is readily avialable, looks great, can be used as a carpet or a wall.

The guy at my LFS has a 4ft tank with xmas moss covering the whole back and sides. It's one of the best tanks I've ever seen. I'd deffo say xmas moss is good for that kind of thing.
