The Selaginella picta is a rarity very sought after among fern collectors, which with increasing maturity is characterized by extraordinary leaf ornamentation. For above evenly arranged rows of deep green leaflets, it forms another row of smaller white leaflets each, which give it the appearance of being decorated with sequins. In care it is somewhat more demanding, it should preferably not be kept as a houseplant, but in a terrarium, where it can grow as a ground cover.
The product photos show examples of the plant. You will receive a specimen that corresponds in size, shape and coloring to the product photos.
