General Information and Care: Selaginella kraussiana is an easy to grow species that does exceedingly well in terrariums. It is low growing, typically only mounding to 3". Many customers love this for that lush moss appearance it can provide without the trouble of growing tropical mosses. Like most all other Selaginella species, this species does not tolerate drying out, but also prefers a well draining soil mix similar to the ABG mix that is commonly used in terrariums.
