Not sure how long Java Moss would float at the surface; if entwined in other floating plants, it would probably form quite an extensive floating mat. JM is widely used for spawning egg scatters as the eggs and fry are somewhat protected.

I got some wisteria and it looks nice when floating. Each node has some roots and leaves. I've left it floating. I decided not to get camboba since the leaves are very frilly. Once they break, it plugs up my pump intake....but I'm having 2nd thoughts. May be it is a good idea to get Camboba since the leaves are so frilly ?

Wisteria shoud be fine, maybe put some Java Moss in it.
