Alien Forest In A Plant Pot

Bonfire-moss (Funaria hygrometrica)

Bonfire-moss Funaria hygrometrica

I have a small plant pot by my water butt which has some liverwort growing in it last time I looked. This time I looked it had something else growing in it, this rather untidy looking yet delightful moss. Note the long, swan-neck seta.

  1. I think I have the same thing growing in one of my pots. I took a macro of them and posted it last year on our NWG blog. I took it with my iPhone using an Olloclip macro lens. Very interesting tiny plants. Great pics! What did you take these with?
