Growth HabitTrailing/Rambling, Groundcover
Although the branched, frondlike foliage of this species somewhat resembles moss, it is in fact a leafy liverwort.
This plant is stunningly beautiful when observed up close.
The leaves are extremely tiny, divided, and closely bunched together, which gives it a woolly texture.
This species seems to do best when it’s very moist or even wet
It prefers very high humidity.
Low to medium intensity of light is best; bright light tends to make it go pale. However, the less light it receives, the slower it grows.
A good substrate is bark, mixed with Sphagnum moss, to increase and stabilize moisture and humidity levels.
