Are there any tricks to growing erythropus? I've got kraussiana, uncinata and martensii growing well but erythropus doesnt want to do anything. Its alive but not growing. Any idea's?

Low light, high humidity, and a little air movement! Bright lighting + S. erythropus = crispy plant

It's not the easiest Selaginella to grow, but if you shade it properly it can get going pretty well. :)

This plant takes a long time to get establish too...
I was told they like it brighter than kraussiana and uncinata, but I don't know mine aren't a success yet.

moist and shaded is the ticket. They tend to curl up if they dry, however mine always seem to come back. Once established, then they can grow into the dryer regions. I have started mine directly under large branches so they were almost fully shaded and they did fine.

So the necessities:

1. moisture
2. humidity
3. lower light until established.

I have actually found this to be one of the easier to grow selaginella's. Once established, it requires the least amount of attention to keep it going...
