Terrarium Study… break?

These two different moss species came in a terrarium set meant to be for a study break, through Princeton, but instead came in handy when I conducted this project as part of Professor Pringle’s EEB321 class at Princeton University. I was surprised by the difference in the textures of the two mosses (Image 1 vs Images 3 and 4) and also am really curious about the darker spots on the first piece of moss in the middle. Is this simply coloration or is somebody hitching a ride of this dried out bit of moss? I’m excited to try to use my foldscope to find out!
