A very pretty unidentified Selaginella species from Peru. This one forms a small fan in bright green with light green tips. The upright stem does not seem to get taller than a couple of inches. From this forms a fan of leaves about 2.5″ long. It spreads by little stems that run on the substrate or a little below it. A new fan pops up every few inches. This one is a real charmer and while quite slow growing, in time creates a wonderful stand.
