Selaginella is used traditionally for bleeding (internal or external) such as menstrual and uterine disorders or bloody stools. The plant is also used as a tonic to improve fitness and stamina.
About the plant:
A charming, low-growing plant that produces a dense cushion of lacy, trailing leaves suitable to give as a gift.Easy to care for and enjoys humid settings such as a bathroom or kitchen.
The fine-textured appearance of Frosty Fern is perfect for pairing with big-leaved or boldly colored houseplants.
How to grow:
Prefers moist but well-drained soil. Check the soil moisture with your finger. If the top 2-4” (5-10cm) of soil is dry, or plants are wilted, it is time to water. Apply a balanced fertilizer designed for foliage plants monthly.
Keeping the foliage trimmed keeps the plants looking neat and tidy, encourages the plant to develop more side-shoots and flowers, and reduces the demand for the plant to develop a larger root system.
