is this HC growing or is something growing out of my aquasoil (dry start)

Hey everyone, so im doing my dry start and this started growing in various places.



Its right next to the HC and also in the back of the tank where there is no HC planted.

Is this new HC growth or is it ssomthing weird growing from the ADA aquasoil? It sure doesnt look like HC.. its growing in patches, 4 different areas, 2 next to the HC and 2 in other areas where no HC is planted close to it

Also some of the leaves are brown on my HC because I just got back from a 2 week vacation so I wasnt able to water or air or anything..

That appears to be a terrestrial moss.

I also had that in my Aquasoil the last time I did an HC dry start. It all died when I flooded the tank.
