Me teacher gave me some java moss for my tank but I didn't want it in my tank so I put it in a big pickle jar in my window and I want to know if it will grow and there is a snail in with the java moss to eat the algae because it's in my window so will it grow?

Why don't you want the java moss in you tank?

Idk if it will grow, doesn't it need filtration?

Because it's just a little Betta bowl ( I know you want at least 5 gallons a Betta but I saved it from the little cup at the pet store) and I don't know why I just don't want it in there it already has a big red plant and some fake lily pads mixed color gravel. I just don't want it in there but will it grow in the pickle jar

It will stay alive! I have a huge amount of java moss in a small container! And it's stayed green for over 1 month now!

It gets aquarium light rather than sunlight

it should be fine in there. you might want to put some ferts in it every now and again and some fresh water but otherwise it'll be just fine.

I'm a newbie at live plants so I have to ask what are ferts?

Ferts, or fertilizer, just like non-aquatic plants. Since you won't need much, I'd suggest getting a liquid fertilizer like Seachem's Flourish comprehensive. Without the fertilizer i'd suspect the java moss would die, i've tried growing it like that once with no success.

I don't get the logic here..we all saved them from little cups at the pet store.

I mean I saved him and gave him a better life because who knows someone might have never bought him and he lived half is life in there or someone might have given him a even more irresponsible home

Well, based on that logic, we could all do irresponsible things with all of our pets. Just sayin'.

+1!! When u buy a betta from ur Lfs in a cup. They are probably already weaken! So u giving them 1 gallon fish bowl ain't gonna do much in the long run.
