Description

Selaginella apoda, Meadow Spikemoss is a densely-foliaged lycophyte from the eastern states of the USA occurring as far west as Texas and Oklahoma and as far north as southern Maine. It is also found in Mexico and Guatemala. It grows in shady damp areas with moist substrates. Spikemosses don't like to dry out or to be exposed to too much sun. Providing this regime of shade and moisture is strictly adhered to, Selaginella apoda is an easy plant to grow. If grown indoors, it will do best in a humid environment like a bathroom and may need to be misted from time to time.

The foliage tends to be darker in the winter.
