here are what spores are supposed to look like on moss.



quote " Ben Tan

"You need to cut open the capsule. The spores of a moss plant can not geminate when kept inside the capsule.

The moss plant that you picked to germinate the capsules is probably a semi-aquatic moss species (see my classification). The spores of a semi-aquatic moss plant will not germinate in tap water. Only the spores of the true aquatic moss species will germinate in water...

Under cultivation, the spores of terrestrial and semi-aquatic mosses will need a germinating bed prepared for the purpose"

once again i have never seen spores come from flame moss

I'm very sorry this happened to you

Consider that Java moss can take weeks to months to show appreciable growth, if these "spores" are legit, it would probably take a long time to show some growth. I'm a bit suspicious about a green colored product that looks suspiciously like green colored aquarium gravel. I'd use a cheap pair of scissors to cut these open, they might be just green gravel.

Is this the seller?

It's an awfully mixed up description

Moss spores are microscopic.

Using micro photography, here is the dusty powder spores coming out of moss:


Here are moss spores under a microscope:


The photos are not mine, just something I found online.

It's the jerk seller's fault for offering fake spores. But if you've learned something from the experience, you didn't lose out completely.

That is awesome of you to offer help to Sharon! :D

Guess what? I bought THREE packets!!! The ad showed some moss and the title was a mishmash of terms, some unrelated and I ignored the word 'seeds' thinking that Java moss doesn't come from seeds.
