Java or moss balls..

I see what is labeled as java or moss balls frequently on sale at my local petshops.. Do these spread out or grow to be carpet plants? I know it's a silly question but i'm just curious cause I can't imagine they are kept in ball form.. thanks for any hlep guys!

They can be grown in ball form and increase in diameter. The moss can be spread out and shaped however you prefer. Moss can be grown on the floor as bushes and to cover the floor but are not true carpets as they have no roots but will attach with their fronds. I have a peacock moss bush in one of my shrimp tanks that takes up almost half of the tank, it looks nice in my opinion
