Why doesn't my moss get the thick moss heads that I see in photos?

Ive had the same problem... I always thought it had something to do with the moss species

Both work fine, for me it's dead LFSM but for most others it's peat.
You can test what is better-growing for you.

Difficult to tell from the photo even when blown up, but at least some of it looks like a carpet moss rather than Sphagnum in which case you will never get big round heads. If you get Sphagnum keep it wet warm and give it light and you will get what you desire.
