Selaginella is a large genus of over 700 species. According to Page & Bennell (1986) eight species are cultivated in Europe, usually for groundcover in greenhouses. Out of these, Selaginella kraussiana is by far the commonest although its cultivation might have decreased in recent times.
A second species, Selaginella helvetica (L.) Spring, is an extinct native species, formerly known from damp, siliceous rocks between Eupen and Malmédy (Hautes Ardennes). It is a much more slender species with stems up to 10 cm long, not articulating at branches (vs. 25-100 cm long, articulating at branches in Selaginella kraussiana).
