How to Grow Lycopodium

Also known as ground pine or club moss, lycopodium is a small, creeping or climbing evergreen plant that grows in forests. Lycopodium, along with its relatives, the ferns, is a seedless vascular plant that reproduces with spores. Native to the Great Lakes area, lycopodium grows best in a cool, moist environment with nutrient-rich soil. Because of its high moisture and humidity requirements, lycopodium is a difficult plant to maintain in the home and is best grown in pots.

Place the lycopodium in a bright area.

Water the lycopodium to keep the soil wet. Keep an eye on the soil during particularly warm, dry weather. Water if the plant begins to dry out. Allow the water to sit in the collection tray beneath the pot.
