Taxiphyllum sp. 'Flame Moss'


This moss, which has not yet been definitively classified, is at home in Southeast Asia. The "Flame" in the name relates to its exceptional growth behaviour: the upright shoots are more or less twisted and look like dancing flames. Care and cultivation are easy, and radical pruning is possible at any time. Binding the moss to free-standing logs and thin root branches will create an incredibly attractive look. This is a fantastic way of highlighting this plant’s growth characteristics.
