helpful hints needed to revive some very tired taiwan moss

I received 3 sections of taiwan moss in the mail yesterday. Only 1 really has much green to speak of and has already started perking up quite well. The other 2 sections are mostly brown with very little specks of green in there. What would be the best method to revive the moss?

Just have good light and water. If it perked up it means your doing a good job. The brown parts are more than likely gone. Good luck.

currently experiencing the same thing. I've been grooming the moss daily by hand and it is slowly perking up. At least the sections that arrived green are. the scavengers in my tank are paying special attention to the brown portions. So hopefully what cant be revived will be eaten. liquid ferts may help. Just a guess, but Im bout to try it.
