Mine stay a little warmer than that and also sit in a bag. The moss looks very very wet, I know they're not supposed to sit in standing water.

The easiest way I've found is to, take some old LFSM, chop it up, and lay that down as a base in a 1020 tray. Put your live spores on top and fill it with water to the top of the dead layer. Put a cover on it and put it in a low light area. Then wait. Once it starts growing good, then you acclimate it to a higher light area. 6-8 months later you have a tray full of live moss. Image

I'll take this info. I put mine into a tub outside, but it seems like no matter where I put it, it either gets no sun or no water lol. I have some dark green. I'll try again I've got a nice bit in another pot that I can pull out and put in there. It grows well in my plants lol.
