Thuidium moss Thuidium delicatulum is a plant that forms mats in grassy places and on dirt, rocks, logs, and tree roots all over the Northern Hemisphere. These plants have a variety of species. These species have variations among themselves on different bases. Only around ten of the seventy-three species are indigenous to North America.

It is found in a variety of locations. However, it prefers moist grasslands, forests, and shaded rocky regions. When people put it inside a terrarium, it forms a dense covering because it's a pleurocarpous plant. This plant prefers to be in an area with a lot of wetness. In a closed terrarium, it will thrive, and in an open terrarium, it requires constant misting.

It is a beautiful texture variety of plants that, as the name implies, resembles a little fern. This moss species features fernlike branches and cylindrical, curving spore capsules that mature during late summer or Autumn. However, not all miniatures are created equal.
