    yeah those suckers are tiny. I'm not sure what species I shipped you, the pulchella x omissa are a bit larger than the other two species. D. Scorpioides gemmae are the largest I've ever seen and they're still only pinheads.

    Any tips on plantin' these little d. puchella? Preferred mix?

    I have LFS, peat, and perlite available. Was thinking about picking up pool filter sand but not sure if HD has, Menards seems to.

    Savagegarden,

    I use half peat, half sand with just a little perlite. I think half peat half perlite would be OK, it's just so it drains a little bit better. A top dressing of sand is a good idea, but you could go without, just have a bit more issue with moss.

    Then sow the gemmae on top like any other CP seed.

    Gotcha, thanks. So just place the gemmae straight on top of the sand top layer? Do you have any pics of your setup?

    Thanks for the giveaway btw!
