no roots but it was set in mud, this was growing submersed, but there was some emersed that was much shorter and growing on rocks. when i pulled it out of the water it looked like mucus. it is about 6 inches tall. and the main stem would not support its weight out of water. it looks like java moss with the tiny fronds coming off. its a poor pic and you cant see this

that is also what i thought at first, but it has the fronds coming off each "stem" like java moss, so im confused. it has no roots at all, and grows both emerged and submersed, im going to try to get some better pics, ill probably have to fill up my 256 mb card to get one or two, lol.

Hubba, I've got it growing in places in the yard. I'll take a pic tommorrow if we don't get the snow they are predicting. I like the stuff. Grows over the logs and rocks around a small natural pond in the yard.

Yup! That is Sphagnum moss, all right. It grows in acid bogs in the North. this is the primary source of peat. It can even take over a forest if the floor gets wet. Eventually the trees die, and the final stage of succession---the climax stage--- turns out to be the moss.
