At my local Ace Hardware I bought a plant called Fiber Optic Grass "Live Wire". Google says it is Isolepsis cernua and it is an annual. Other places on the internets say it can be grown indoors and may overwinter inside with temps no lower than 45 degrees F. Here is a photo of it and a dwarf horsetail Equisetum. The smallest pot with moss I collected from a sidewalk is about 2 inches.

Anyone ever heard of Fiber Optic Grass? I think its nice.

It's a marginal, so can survive with constantly wet feet. I have used it several times on the waterfall area of my fish pond. Cool little plant. I did keep it one year in my bonsai winter enclosure with my less hardy trees, but the problem I had was forgetting to water it often enough. Since it was only about $5 for a 4" pot I don't bother trying to save it.

It works out well if you have the ability to keep it wet, had some in a terrarium for a long time and I agree it looks nice.
