I joined this site for the sole purpose of not being able to find anything anywhere else to help me. In November of last year I acquired what I think is a creeping inchplant (or a small leaf spiderwort, I can't recall) in a 'succulent sphere' (not sure if there's a technical name for those).
Here is the picture I took of it back in November:

Here is a picture I took just now:

It is in an east facing window with the blinds always open. I believe one of my problems has been underwatering; I had to cut back on watering after I noticed some mold growing in the moss.
I'm not sure if it's salvagable (I'm hoping so) and if anybody can offer some guidence that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much

Welcome! Hope we can help.
I have had this plant or similar, agreed some type of Tradescantia or close. I have never had a plant in a hanging ball. I wonder if it is not enough light.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)
