***This post is a part of my April A to Z series where this year I will be highlighting different plants each day.  Check out this page to see all of my posts combined on one easy sheet. ***

Selaginella erythropus (Red club Moss)


Origin-Tanzania, Yucatan and Belize

Water –needs to be kept moist

Temperature-under cold temperatures foliage will turn red on top otherwise green on top

This spike moss has bright red stems with typically green bush and red underneath.  This is a slower growing plant and is perfect for a shady spot.  Leaves are prone to burning under direct light so keep in the shade.

This micro mini plant will have tiny under 1″ leaves.  The plant may grown several inches in diameter but the leaves will never grow over an inch.  This plant can be mounted on wood or in soil.  The tiny light purple and white flowers are adorable.  It is very easy to propogate this plant via tip cuttings.   sinfreck-3t
