to Moss or not to moss?

This is the question. I know moss helps to keep the soil moist and protect roots, but mine always shrivels up and dies. What am I doing wrong? And should I be having moss at all?

You're not keeping it moist enough charlie bruno. Misting with a spray bottle a couple of times a day might help.
