Selaginella and PDFs
At first I thought it was the perfect groundcover. Low-growing, fast-growing, easier than moss, and more quickly established into a nice carpet. But now mine is growing taller, and is more of a thick dense mat or low shrubbery than a nice low carpet. So basically I'm wondering how on earth PDFs can hop around on/in this stuff! Wouldn't their little legs get all tangled in it? So far my little selaginella shrubs are about 2" deep (tall), and they cover most of the ground surface area of my terrarium. I do really like the way it looks, so I wouldn't want to remove all of it when I eventually get PDFs, but has anyone found it to be a problem? Could I just keep it trimmed or 'mowed' shorter when the time comes? Any thoughts?
