Not 100% accurate. Things like CO2 and hot water and high light speed up growth. In my .5wpg tank in my Garage, Yes that's right garage.. no heat nothing but water(and a small homemade intank filter). I have some of the healthiest stringy moss growth that I've ever seen.For the moss the most important factors are:
1) Water temperature, below 75 degrees will definitely make moss happy
2) Water movement
3) Frequent Water changes
Lighting and CO2 are secondary, but if the primary needs are met, high light and CO2 will give you excellent growth. Of course, the things I'm mentioning are also in regard to getting the tightest and most attractive, healthiest growth from the moss.
ALL these lessons I've learned with some mosses May apply to others. The two you listed are generally more sensative mosses to my knowledge but there are HUNDREDS of fissidens species I'm assuming you're talking about the more common ones in the hobby.. especially Fontanus. (there are somewhere around 630 fissidens in the usa alone ...) When I have spent years with each moss in the hobby I'll only be able to tell you for sure. And that will be a while longer...do the lessons you all learned from growing moss apply equally to;
or are those somehow very different in their optimal growing requirements?
is there really that much quality/quantity difference between moss grown in;
74°F tank water ?
79°F tank water ?
lol... Java moss is pretty crazy!I remember some people telling me their Javan moss grew even on heaters and were quite worried that the plant will be burned.:hihi:
