Java moss - Taxiphyllum barbieri, Vesicularia dubayana, Spiky moss, Taxiphyllum sp (common aquatic mosses)

These are aquatic mosses which I collected in various streams in the northern regions of west peninsular Malaysia, except for the Spiky moss which I bought from a friend. These mosses grow in different conditions.

These are some of the mosses I have at the moment; but given that Taxiphyllum barbieri is faster growing and looks nicer than the rest ... it is my favourite! :)
