The only moss I have ever had any success with has hitchhiked in on orchids that I have purchased, it needs to be kept wet and have good lighting, it only really took off when I upgraded my lights from t5s to higher output leds and only really seems to grow near the roots of the orchids (wetter here due to watering), unfortunately I'm unsure of the species (could even just be sphagnum).

Tropical rather than local moss will probably fare better, hopefully some one with more moss growing experience will chime in on the subject.
