Selaginella is a small tropical plant that sometimes creeps, climbs, and trails. Those who live in humid and hot climates can grow it outdoors as an effective ground cover, but outside of that environment it’s frequently grown in terrariums or water trays where it thrives in the constant moisture. Here are other reasons to love Selaginella:
- The various types of Selaginella display a range of green shades, and many have a fern-like appearance.
- Does well indoors in window gardens, terrariums and green houses.
- Benefits from being planted outdoors in partial or full shade.
- Selaginella requires that its soil is kept damp constantly, but with no standing water. It will not survive drought.
