Saxifraga stolonifera Tricolor
Stock Number: 40915
"Magic Carpet" Wide gray and Ivory margins with pink tones & fine red edging on scalloped leaf edges; lovely in any terrarium and splendidly colored under lights--be sure your soil is sweet, be sure the temperatures are not too high.

Stock Number: 30542
A more robust clone than our original slow growing clone. Leathery wide lance leaves of glossy grey green, nearly obscured with bright aluminum grey. Best grown on a moss pole with the lovely visual result of shingled silvery pewter toned foliage in a glowing column. Very sensitive to chill; thus, we can only ship duri...

Scindapsus pictus argyraeus
Stock Number: 30400
"Satin Pothos" Beautiful leathery matte-green shimmering leaves are brushed with sugary silver. Good houseplant, although a bit slow to start. Foliage leathery enough to survive variable humidity levels, thus remaining among our favorite indoor plants--but be sure this beauty is proctected from chill. Currently enjoyin...

Scirpus cernuus [isolepis gracilis]
Stock Number: 40916
"Electric Grass" or "Fountain Bullrush" Perfect miniature tufts of translucent pendant green thread leaves tipped with bright straw-white bracts not unlike a mop of fiber optics!

Selaginella Fairy Plume [Species]
Stock Number: 11416
Unidentified species from Southeast Asia with slim erect stems arching at top under weight of chartreuse plumes--possibly a compact form of S. victoriae. Must have rest period mid-winter; may reach one foot in height if given enough time. This is in the S. victoriae complex.
$3.50
Selaginella flabellata
Stock Number: 11703
A "Clubmoss" similar in its upright stature to martensii, but perhaps more compact with a bit coarser substance and a lovely dull gloss surface on each elaborately fingered wave of foliage which narrows when spore is produced. Quite interesting.
$6.50
Selaginella krausiana Gold Tips
Stock Number: 11624
Fabulous ferny carpet with all new growth tipped bright yellow against the darker mature clubmoss foliage--the fans of growth are wider and slightly more erect initially than those of the very similar 'aurea.'
$4.00
Selaginella kraussiana aurea
Stock Number: 11412
"Golden Clubmoss" Short arching stems form bright mat; essential in any terrarium to brighten the design. While sometimes hard to distinguish from 'Gold Tips' in the summer, with winter temperatures and light intensities this tends to send out long 'fingers' of growth for a period mid-winter.
$4.00
Selaginella kraussiana brownii
Stock Number: 11453
"Emerald Isle" or (although native to S. Africa) "Scotch Moss." Once again available for the new season. Very compact, much branched stems eventually creating tiny cushions--excellent for extremely small terariums. Merely fabulous--but site it so it will not be swamped by or swallowed up by a more vigorous neighbor. Pl...

Selaginella martensii albolineata
Stock Number: 11413
"Snowy Club Moss" Arched, yet creeping, prostrate brittle, much-divided stems winged with scale-like glossy leaves with irregular patches of pure bright white--astoundingly beautiful--but be warned that this will remain entirely green if grown in constantly warm conditions. Mexican species for the larger terrarium. Rar...

Selaginella moellendorfii

Selaginella pallescens [emmeliana]
Stock Number: 11427
"Sweat Plant" Fine terrarium plant growing in circular rosette arching vase forms with very fine foliage noted for holding droplets of condensation, thus "sweating"-- Venezuela, Z10. Very similar habit to moellendorfii, but much slower growing, not seasonal in growth spurts, and a touch more basil green in coloration. ...

Selaginella plana
Stock Number: 11472
Strong erect stems hold bright branched fans of shimmery foliage. Very distinctive beautiful "Spikemoss Cypress" species achieving more dramatic height than most of the tropical "Clubmosses." Certainly not "creepy." Unmatched for giving an exceptionally elegant vertical effect in a wardian case or larger terrarium; but...

Selaginella posada #15 [Species]
Stock Number: 11414
Curly-fingered "fronds" intermingle into sea-green tostled carpets; uniquely colored unidentified Central American coming to us from the collection at Kew Gardens. This tends to be overordered, so best to check on availability before ordering. Considered the most beautiful by many fern collectors.
$10.00
Selaginella umbrosa
Stock Number: 11478
"Red Clubmoss" Dark reddish stems give bronze mahagony tone to the abbreviated deep green leaves; tossled waves of short foliage make this Mexican a collector's choice. Small statured plants somewhat slow to establish compared to some species. Avoid extreme heat and deep shade.
$8.00
Selaginella uncinata
Stock Number: 11485
"Peacock Moss" "Rainbow Fern" Climbing and rambling stems, much branched, with blue tinted dimorphic scale "leaves" in four ranks. Sometimes looks like an oil slick. Becomes rather brownish during its dormant winter cycle, but fear not--just keep cool, moist, and very bright and behold, new blue foliage emerges come sp...

Serissa foetida flora plena
Stock Number: 40917
Miniature-statured woody shrub with interlacing twigs bear tiny glossy green leaves in pert pairs and cute double white flowers tucked along the stems. The "Double flowered Snow Rose" much valued as the bonsai "Kochok" because with time it gradually takes on the character of aged trees. Quite a treat when in bloom.
$5.75
Serissa foetida Pink Mountain
Stock Number: 42136
Hansoti #18. Marvelous compact selection with distinctly fastigate habit and reduced leaves; lovely pink blossoms. Very vigorous selection good in a sunny window. Also successful trained as a staked standard, achieving an appearance similar to that of a staked Myrtus.
