Positive Cretaceous On Apr 7, 2007, Cretaceous from El Sobrante, CA (Zone 9b) wrote:

Of all the Selaginella I have tried growing outdoors, this seems to be one of the hardiest. I have two of these planted between rocks on our front garden, and both seem to be (very slowly) growing.

If it has not rained, I spray them with filtered water in the morning so that they don't dry out. Other than that, I treat them just like my ferns.

This species is native to China and India.
