General Information and Care: Selaginella plana is one of the larger growing Selaginellas that Glass Box Tropicals offers. Many customers love this species due to the ease of making it appear very natural. It has a meandering growth habit and will wander all over a tank. This species has light red to dark red to green stems depending on growing conditions. When the stems produce leaves, they look like big fans and are typically light green, though in some conditions can be a darker green. This is a species that will require some trimming to keep the appearance that is desired in a terrarium.
