Description

Yay, my second Selaginella! Quite different from the S. wallacei I've seen in Marin, which grows on this one shady rock and is generally bigger and sprawling. This stuff was growing out of dry, exposed, rocky soil in a chaparral patch. Even saw some of the "cones"!

this is such a neat plant, when it rains after a dry period this plant goes from brown to green in what seems like a few minutes... definitely overnight. It dries out fast too.
