Fissidens Fontanus from spores??

OK, maybe I'm seeing things but I can swear that I have Fissidens Fontanus sprouting from driftwood. I noticed some tiny tiny bright green specks a couple of weeks ago and thought it was some kind of new algae, to go along with my other algae, but it now looks like Fissidens fonds. Last night I notice scattered around the same wood additional flecks of bright green.

Yes, I have had at one time some Fissidens Fontanus in the tank but never on "this" piece of driftwood.

I'll try to take some pics later tonight.

As with any other moss, I bet that there was a frond of Fissidens floating around that managed to get lodged/attached to your piece of new wood. This then began to grow into what you see today.
It could be. I've had wood with F. fontanus growing on it and I took it out of water for storage after removing the moss. Some months later when I put it back into the water the moss began growing back after a couple of months.
