Selaginella white

It seems remarkable that there is even enough chlorophyll in this plant to grow, as in high light it becomes a stark white. Most plants stand about three inches tall, with the end few inches or two hanging down, sometimes touching the substrate again.  It is difficult to capture in photographs but it has a very lacy appearance.  It occurs in Peru and perhaps elsewhere.
