Mini Pellia Riccardia chamedryfolia
Fully grown/attached on steel mesh for at least 10 weeks
Mini Pellia displays tiny, deep green fronds that are very short and flat, generally ending in a few short diagonal branches. It is actually a species of liverwort rather than a moss, so the appearance is uniquely distinct from mosses.
Due to its very compact growth form, Mini Pellia is excellent for bonsai features, dense bushes, foreground carpets and for softening the appearance of hardscape. It can also be grown emersed if humidity is sufficiently high.
Mini Pellia is easy to grow, requiring only low to moderate lighting for best form. As with all plants, CO2 injection will be beneficial, but is not required to grow Mini Pellia successfully. It prefers temperatures between 18°-25°.
