Lycopodium clavatum is a club moss that grows abundantly in the northern regions of Canada, Norway and Russia. The spores (seeds) of this moss are very tiny and are very high in fat content. Because of the fat content they are very flammable when aspirated (when air can get between the spores) which makes it the perfect fuel for making a simple, cheap flame thrower!
How does the Moss Spore Flame Thrower work?
A spore can be thought of as a seed that is dispersed so that a new plant will grow in a new area. A spore is different from a seed in that it is usually unicellular (only one cell) where as a seed is usually multicellular (many cells). But, the Lycopodium clavatum spore is high in fat content relative to its small size. Fat and oils (or lipids) are flammable. We can use these properties to do some amazing science tricks!
Hydrophobic Properties of the Lycopodium Moss Spores
Lycopodium is very hydrophobic (wiki). Hydrophobic literally means “water fearing”. This is because of the high lipid (fat) content in the cell wall. Fats are not soluble in water which means they are hydrophobic.
This hydrophobicity is one of the best properties of Lycopodium because it allows lycopodium to float on water and to easily coat an object that is placed into the spore/water solution (see the video above). In fact, it is so hydrophobic that it can be poured out of the water, through a flame, and still burst into flames!
