wanted to say im pretty sure this was a hitch hiker on the grass. it seams to be growing at spots now away from the grass with out runners that i can see. i also dont see roots. this stuff is super tiny! i think its a moss but way nano size. i cant stress how small it is.

About the only thing I can tell is that it's a moss. Highly detailed, really sharp photos might help, but consulting a bryologist is probably the best option. It's one thing to know what native stems and so on are, but with moss it's a whole new ball game.

Yes it is small, and yes it could be a moss, i have been unable to really see any roots and thats the only way i know to tell a moss. with out a microscope and a degree that is.

i put some in my pico this morning to see if its capable of growing submersed. maybe it only grows emerged and that is why know body seams to recognize it?

I've no idea what it is but it looks cool. I hope it grows for you in your pico, but even if it doesn't it's great in your emersed setup.

Not sure if this is it, but it may be Plagiomnium affine.
I wouldn't hazard a guess as to species, but Plagiomnium was my first thought too. I hope you can grow a lot of it - I think the vivarium folks might like to trade you lots of green for it.
