I have experienced the same problem as well. It seems like the only way to get living moss to grow on my bonsai soil is if it starts to grow there by itself.

Shade and moisture are key to most mosses growing successfully. I would look for mosses that are growing in locations more similar to where the tree is to be kept. A daily misting does help.
