I recently bought some java moss(mail ordered). When it arrived 2 days ago and I put it in my tank it looked really brown. It has "greened up a little" in the 2 days I've had it. My question is: Will it get greener? Is it dead? It took 5 days to arrive so I figured since it had been in the dark so long that maybe it is just "in shock". Any help is much appreciated.

Java moss is almost impossible to kill. if it is showing new green that mean it is growing and not dead. Some of it may be dead- that part will stay brown. It will grow as long as it has some green.

I think it is greener than it was yesterday! YAY! It is still brown on most parts, but is getting about 5% greener everyday so far. Yes it has been very cold here. The day the moss came it was 7degrees Far. BURRR......Thank you all for your quick replies and I will keep you posted on my 80% brown--20% green java moss....wife says 85%--15%

I will sometimes give my Java Moss a ride around the tank with the help of a powerhead .. to clean and separate. This helps keep it live and from being buried under itself in a clump.
