Default Moss Suggestions

Hello all, I'm looking for a moss that can cling vertically to a suspended branch (also doesn't need dirt to thrive) and which can grow healthy in a high humid environment but with relatively low levels of direct watering. If it wasn't an ultra slow grower that would also be a plus.

I've looked a mood moss and it has potential though its very slow growing so I'm concerned I'll have to keep it tied onto the branch for months. I'm also not entirely sure if it needs soil or not.

That said, any other suggestions would be most welcome!

Maybe try Neherp moss slurry?

Spread it on and see what sticks.

I actually have tried the slurry, it unfortunately still needs much too much water. Its still a sheet moss style mix and the sheet moss is too demanding of moisture in order to work in this setting. My humidity is between 80%-95% constantly but the actual watering is light and only once a day. Not enough to keep that stuff green and beautiful

Looks like star moss that grows from peat. Order any carnivorous plant in a peat based soil mix and you will have it. Or get some peat and keep it moist, humid, and under light and it should pop up in a few weeks.
