If grown indoors it can be hard at times to grow due to not having enough humidity to continue growing. Soil for moss needs to be very dense and moist. Dense enough to make a solid ball. Most mosses have felt like touch and can be a bright green color or a very dark green color. One of the most common moss for terrariums is the Pillow moss.
