will brown Java Moss "grow back"?

New to planted tanks, just got in a large order of plants (from Aquariumplants.com, will post a review in their forum shortly), overall everything I got was spectacular looking. My only possible issue is with the java moss. I ordered 4 bunches of the stuff and in all four, I would say the moss is probably 75-80% brown and only 20-25% green. Is this an issue? Is this normal? Will the brown stuff turn green once it's back in light, or will it die off? Is any of this a concern--is it worth "complaining" about to the people I ordered it from or is this par-for-the-course with this stuff and considered normal when shipping it?

toss it in the tank and let it grow. many plants look less than perfect after being shipped. java moss should bounce back in a couple weeks.
