mine does...but some get it to get really big... I dont think It would be a good ground cover...I tried as I thought the same thing but nope..... although It does go great like in a betta tank or on driftwood (ppl have claimed to get it to grow on rock...never worked for me)

Arrow, there is a variety with thin leaves, but its less common. Most of us have the kind like Blazey. I'd love to take some whenever you get babies from it, if you do have the narrow leaf variety
Java moss also does better when anchored to something. Mine has never really taken off.
