    Are this real moss and what's growing inside?

    Yes, that appears to be Sphagnum moss. It looks different because the photo is only of the tops of each strand, while yours have the strands laying out lengthwise. The "heads" may not be as compact because of light, water, humidity and temperatures levels and differences in seasonal growth. Given the right conditions and undisturbed growth it should look similar. Of course they could just be different species.

    The hitch-hiker could be anything. I see all sorts of stuff sprouting in Sphagnum from ferns, grasses, sorrel, and assorted weeds.
