  • Fertilization: Selaginella martensii does not require frequent fertilization. You can fertilize the plant once every two months using a balanced liquid fertilizer.

  • Pruning: Selaginella martensii does not require pruning, but you can trim any dead or damaged leaves to maintain the plant's appearance.

  • Pests and Diseases: Selaginella martensii is generally a pest-resistant plant. However, it can be susceptible to spider mites and scale insects. Regularly inspect the plant for any signs of pests or diseases and treat them promptly.

By following these care tips, you can create a healthy and thriving environment for your Selaginella martensii in a terrarium.
