All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended

Plants growing in containers need more fertilizing than those in the ground. The more you water, the more quickly you flush the nutrients out of the soil.

Plant Essentials

Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:The selaginella needs to be fertilised with a generic fertiliser only the year after its potted and once every year.
Repotting : Repot in a larger pot only if the roots have taken up the entire space in the pot and are showing above the soil.
Propogation : Vegetative propagation is the easiest way to propagate the Fern, so cutting of new growths planted in a well-draining but rich soil is the best option.
