This is a fern like you've never seen before. Small and rare, its scale-like foliage will dazzle and amaze.
Native to the Pacific area but spread worldwide, this terrestrial plant belongs to the spike moss family, a common name attributed to a family of over 700 species. It lives in tropical conditions and is often considered rare.
It has dense foliage of scale-like green to bluish leaves that make it easy to identify. It is this unique foliage and leaf-covered stems that give it ornamental value since its characteristic ramifications resemble corals or some cedar leaves. Although a slow grower, it doesn't grow over 16 inches (40 cm) high. This plant is not poisonous.
