Selaginella uncinata is a scrawling herb that can grow more than 100 cm long. It has thin leaves, green to metallic blue-green in color, and produces two types of foliage, with the leaves along the sides of the main stem being larger than the paired, overlapping leaves on the main stem. The plant produces a single strobilus, positioned at the tip of the branch. 

Attention: It is recommended that the substrate remains constantly moist but not excessively wet to avoid root necrosis. 


Green Mirrors recommends that the plant be kept in optimal conditions at first, while it is juvenile, to favor its acclimatization and development. It can be placed in a display case or under a glass dome.
