Please note that this is a miniature terrarium, only 4" tall. Pictures taken up close can make items appear larger.

Lichen is a kind of primitive plant species, an organism made up of two separate species, algae and fungi. Remarkable in that it can tolerate the most extreme environments. It can live on soil, woody debris, rocks, tree bark, tree leaves, desert sand, and even rusty metal. To assist its survival in such inhospitable conditions, Lichen is able to shut down during periods of unfavorable conditions/during drought and then with the appropriate amount of light and moisture reconstitute itself. Nature's pioneer!
