Here is that beautiful British Soldier Lichen that so many are wanting to add to their terrariums.

I show them laid in my outside moss garden with my cladonia cup lichens and fern moss as well as other moss and lichens. You are getting only the British Soldier section here. Remember lichens prefer a more open less humid environment so if putting into a terrarium an open lid or a small neck opening is best.

Yours will look similar to the photos shown here.Each piece will be no smaller than 1"x1" squared. Sometimes I actually include several smaller sections together.

The red tip is actually the fruiting spore.

It may contain more moss/lichens in each section that you order. Each piece will be such an original and unique section as no 2 look alike!

Put this in your outside shade garden or terrarium.

In this common lichen the red spore-producing reproductive structures are clearly visible. The lichen's name, Cladonia cristatella, is actually the name of the fungus. The alga species in the lichen is known as Trebouxia erici. However, it's customary to name a lichen after its fungal part, so the whole lichen is known as Cladonia cristatella.

British Soldiers are usually found on decaying wood, soil, mossy logs, tree bases, and stumps. They help break down old wood and put nutrients back into the soil where they can be used by plants. Lichens also take nitrogen from the air and put it into the soil so plants can use it. Cladonia cristatella
