Need help indentifying moss

fho87May 15, 2014

Hi everyone,
I need some help identifying this moss so I can be sure to properly care for it and possibly find more. It grows like crazy on the roof of my parents shed, but I haven't seen them any where else really. It seems to tolerate sun quite well, which is good as I am trying to grow it in an area that gets more Sun than would probably be great for most moss. I am pretty sure it is a pleurocarp. Also I've never seen any spore shoots on these, even when well established. Any clue what this might be?
