It is fairly common for the for sections of moss to dry out from direct sunlight and low humidity. The moss itself dries fairly quickly any way. I found using a humidity dome (in my case a clear disposable cup) Keeps the moss fairly moist. Can you post of pic of the plant and moss? :cry: , I'll be able to provide you with the info you need once I see the situation. :)
