Selaginella (spikemoss) growing with, and over, agaves.
The agaves are pups from a much larger agave I grew here years ago. I dug it up, but the beginning of the pups stayed behind and grew on to become happy healthy plants. The selaginella "fell" from the dish above, one winter I filled filled the dishes with spikemoss and something (a bird? a squirrel?) dug in the dish and the pieces that fell to the ground took hold—while the plants in the dishes later died. So that's how this very strange combination, which looks to be pretty happy, came to be.
