Could be juvenile sphagnum. Though there are a lot of other possible mosses. WAY too young to tell

Really? It just grew by itself. I leave them on my shelf, not much humidity there, and moderate light for 14 hrs. Also, the pots are almost always wet and trays full of water. This took about 2-3 months to grow.

I'm also using Vigoro peat moss in those pots.

Lol well the media staying wet is definitely a factor. Still, it sounds like it grows faster for you. There are tons of sphagnum types out there though, maybe yours is more accommodating

You should see the crazy-vigorous sphagnum moss in my neck of the woods. It forms big, loose, fluffy mounds. If you accidentally stepped on it, you'd sink in almost to your knee.
