First time making a java moss tree, itís brown. How do I make this better?

I ordered moss online and it arrived mostly brown. I put my tree together using sponges and super glue with a fake decoration bare-branched tree. Iím pretty bummed that itís mostly brown though, and would like to try and brighten it up before adding it to my tank. I put the tree in a bucket along with a root tab to the water, and placed it in a room that gets natural sunlight. The light is not directly hitting the plants, however. Is this a good setup to ensure a brighter, happier plant over a bit of time before introducing to my tank? Click image for larger version

Use some dingy old tank water plus the root tab.

Algae will likely get a hold of it sitting in sunlight tho...

Might be best to salvage what you can and put into your tank.

If it were easy we wouldn't be here
