It's not uncommon for new plants not to acclimate well and some outright just melt. Mosses take awhile to really take off and often times even if they look mostly brown they will eventually start growing. Flame moss is one that has done that to me in the past. When plants don't thrive and begin to die or melt there is usually something in the water chemistry they don't like. It's really hard to pinpoint what caused that in your plants after the fact. But if you have proper lighting for the type plants you grow, give them proper amounts of nutrients, do weekly WC's, and use at least a liquid carbon then you should have success. You want nitrates to be 10-20ppm and phosphates 1-3ppm. Gh and Kh needs to be 4 or above to ensure plants have enough calcium and magnesium in the water.
