Selaginella kr. brownii

Selaginella kraussiana brownii.  A very favorite of ours.  So soft and adorable, you can't help but touch it!  Very tiny moss looks like a small, brilliant green 'pincushion'.

Selaginella kr. brownii

Average Rating 4.6 out of 5

Well behaved

This is a sweet little plant that is well behaved. It won’t take over your terrarium. I prefer low maintenance terrariums where I’m not constantly fighting with one plant to keep it from taking over another. This one fit the bill. When you get it, if your environment is dry, I would suggest getting it in a terrarium for humidity ASAP.

I have purchased several selaginella from multiple vendors and none looked as great as these do. Really nice little plant!

Very pretty

It's very pretty. I saw in another comment that you can break it up. I like the pin cushion look for some terrariums, but also wanted to be able to tuck a little here in there in some small terrariums. I gave it a try, and its been a while now and all seems well. Now I want more!

Very cute

This seems like a bunch of tiny plants. You can plant all of it in one spot or spread it out. Very nice in a terrarium.

I can't seem to get this one right

Gorgeous plant but I can't seen to get it to survive for more than a couple of months. Given up on buying replacements.

Looks interesting

I think these looks really cool, and people are saying that these are hardy as well, so I think I'll be getting some for my windowsill.

Hardy moss

This is a very attractive moss that seems to live longer and be more hardy than most other mosses in the terrarium.

nice plant!!!

So soft looking and forms a perfect mound. I have several of these and they are a great addition to any container garden.

Love this plant

I absolutely love this plant. So easy to grow and makes a nice pin cushion quickly.I can imagine a fairy sitting on it to take a rest. I am making a container garden for my daughter as a house warming gift and will include this plant because it is so well behaved.

Lovely Plant

Love love love this plant. I have this plant in my fairy garden and you can just imagine a fairy sitting on this plant dreaming the day away. Nice little mounding plant that holds it's shape. I would recomend this plant to anyone, in fact when I start up my next garden I will be ordering another of these!
