In that forest area found many plants such as fungi, mosses, and lichens (lichen). Lichen is one of cryptogamae. One of the dominant lichen found in Sekipan is fruticose lichen.

Colonies of the highest species of lichen fruticose are Parmelia squarrosa species derived from the genus Parmelia and Family Parmeliaceae as much as 135 colonies. The lowest colonies of fruticose species lichen namely Physcia stellaris derived from the Physcia genus of the 18 colonies of Family Physciaceae.
