Selaginella Golden Moss Fern 140MM

Selaginella ‘Golden Moss Fern’ – 140MM

(Not currently available to be ordered)

I am Golden Spike Moss. My family originated from Southern Africa

Botanic Name: Selaginella kraussiana

Ground Cover – Shade-Loving

Related to true mosses I am a low creeping moss like plant with golden dense foliage.

Well adapted to shade I work well as an indoor plant, in terrariums and sharing a pot underneath other plants. I am happy tucked into all sorts of corners.

I am tolerant of a range of light levels but do best in brighter conditions when grown indoors.

I prefer regular moisture and tolerate boggy wet soils. I am a “resurrection plant” if I do dry out I will brown off but usually will green up and come back to life when moisture is returned.
