Well this is one of my newest tanks. I have recently replanted with some Properly mixed soil and then put the Selaginella back in.

I have closed of the top with plastic sheets so humidity is way up.

Soil is holding much more humidity now as you can see i got rid of the dry layer on top.

I put it beside the ficus so there are areas in full light, part light, and shade to figure out what is working.

Please tell me what you think is happening i took some photos for ya guys.

I may have to go with the java moss or christmas moss.

It looks to me like you are keeping the fronds too wet.

Ed I agree..Ive lost S. kraussiana several times now. Makes me feel pretty pitiful since its supposed to be a common houseplant LOL

Also Antone is right. Never push it down in.. just lay it on some moist sphagnum and keep it moist.
Also putting potting soil in a viv is a bad idea all around. especially if you have a water area it could leach into. or microfauna that could be effected by the ferts and other nasty horticultural chemicals
