All of our plants are grown outdoors in nature and are exposed to the natural elements. Sometimes this means a leaf could have been chewed here and there or have a blemish or two – but we do our best to send the best plants we can on every order.

Selaginella, commonly known as spike moss or club moss, is a fascinating plant that can add a touch of greenery and elegance to your indoor or outdoor space. Here are some general tips on how to keep Selaginella healthy:

  1. Light: Selaginella prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight, as this can scorch its delicate foliage. A north or east-facing window is usually ideal.

  2. Temperature and Humidity: Selaginella thrives in moderate to warm temperatures, ideally between 15°C to 27°C. It also prefers high humidity levels. Misting the plant regularly or placing it on a tray filled with pebbles and water can help increase humidity levels.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged. Water when the top few centimeters of soil feels dry to the touch. It's essential to avoid letting the soil dry out completely, as this can lead to wilting. However, overwatering can cause root rot, so be mindful not to let the plant sit in water.

  4. Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that retains moisture, such as a blend of peat moss, perlite, and compost. This will prevent water from pooling around the roots while providing adequate aeration.

  5. Fertilisation: Selaginella doesn't require frequent fertilization. You can feed it with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half-strength every two to four weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant winter months.

  6. Pruning: Regularly prune dead or yellowing foliage to promote healthy growth and maintain the plant's appearance. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears to avoid damaging the plant.

  7. Pest Control: Keep an eye out for pests such as spider mites, mealybugs, and aphids, which can occasionally infest Selaginella. If you notice any pests, gently wash the plant with a mild soap solution or use insecticidal soap according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  8. Repotting: Repot Selaginella when it outgrows its current container, usually every one to two years. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one, and refresh the soil to provide the plant with fresh nutrients.

By following these care tips, you can enjoy a vibrant and thriving Selaginella plant in your home or garden.
