Question:
How do you grow/cultivate club moss or lycopodium? I have the spores. What are the best growing conditions? I live in Colorado, i.e. about 5500 ft.

Club mosses prefer damp or wet soil, but depending upon the species it might grow best in sunlight or shade (see above descriptions).

Sincerely,
