Product Description

you are purchasing 12 ground pine plants,Lycopodium obscurum ,ground pine is known for the treelike appearance of its sporophyte, however its main stem is actually a subterranean, creeping rhizome, which grows about 6 cm below ground. Several aerial shoots branch off of the rhizome, which also branch dichotomously several times, giving L. obscurum its distinctive appearance. Fertile shoots possess sessile strobili, borne at the tops of their main axes and sometimes at the tips of dominant lateral branches. The leaves are microphylls, each containing only a single vein and measuring less than 1 cm long. Two types of microphylls are formed, green trophophylls that cover most of the aerial shoots, and yellow to tan sporophylls that form the strobili, and contain the sporangia. L. obscurum reproduces sexually via spores and also vegetatively, through its rhizome Historically, L. obscurum has been harvested from the wild for use as Christmas greens for wreaths, as well as the use of its spores for flash powder
