Amblystegium serpens


This filigree moss, also known as „nano-moss“ is rife in the northern hemisphere as well as in South America and Australia. Like all mosses, the Amblystegium moss is ideal for greening roots and stones and thanks to its very fine and upright shoots an interesting addition to other moss species. Especially important: fresh and clear water. The fresh light green color looks very contrasting in combination with other shades of green in an underwater landscape.
