Vesicularia montagnei 'Christmas' 003a tcVesicularia montagnei 'Christmas' 003a tcOur price: £4.95View A moss speciality from Brasil, 1-3 cm tall, called "Christmas tree moss'', because of its side branch structure which distinguishes it from ordinary Vesicularia dubyana and looks like fir tree branches.
