Moss on brick
The live tropical pillow moss commonly sold for vivariums needs rather bright light to grow well, so here I put it on a brick in the foreground of the vivarium where it won't be shaded too much by the bigger plants.  The moss came with some soil under the clumps, so I just set a brick in the water, and put the moss on top of the moist brick. I've never sprayed directly on it, but it does great. Some of the water from the driftwood waterfall does run onto the brick, which I'm sure helps. Behind the moss patch is a miniature Sinningia 'Freckles' which is currently without flowers. The Episcia above it is much more floriferous, constantly producing its orange-red blooms.
