so there's 10 types of fissidens and 7 types of fontinalis native to NJ wow, I found a list of all the native mosses here, theres 383 types in NJ

I found some rare looking mosses today while hiking in Northern NJ,

Pic 1 -I think it's a type of fissidens, can anyone ID it?
Pic 2 - most of the mosses look like this one, the first one caught my eye

I brought 3 types back and I'm growing them out immersed, and some submersed to see what happens

last summer I found some micranthemum micranthemoides on a sand/mud bar in a stream, didn't take any because supposedly it's endangered and i already had a bunch, I'm on the look out for some fissidens and maybe finding some new plants for the hobby

here's 2 pics showing the moss I think is in the Fissidens family after about 2 weeks of growth in an immersed set up.

it is growing, it's gotten a lot more stringy on the new growth I'm not sure if this is how it grows or if the new growth is more stringy looking because its in a different environment, maybe because it gets much more light now than it did sitting in the shade in the forest where I found it. I'm separating it out and putting some in lower light and some in a submersed set up. I will update in about 2 weeks.
