Zooming in on Cushion Moss... by marlboromaam

Zooming in on Cushion Moss...

One of my favorite shades of green. Looks like a creature from Star Trek! This is Leucobryum – from leuk for white & bryo for moss
▪ Common name: Cushion Moss
▪ Grows on soil, rocks, tree bases. Common along trails
▪ Tightly packed stems form tufts (pin cushion shape)
▪ Lance-shaped leaves – greenish when wet, white when dry
▪ Upper leaf edges rolled into a tubular needle-like shape; acts as a trough
▪ No costa
▪ Vegetatively reproduce from stems that break off; seldom produce spore capsules

Will post a pic of actual size in my Extras album.

Great textures in this shot. The cushion moss looks lovely but appears to be very invasive. I have never seen it grow here, so that is only my opinion.
