    Losfreddy, I suggest you read this article: http://www.cpzine.com/article.aspx?c...2002&m=10&d=12

    Sow your gemmae right away.

    Good luck

    I would also recommend sowing them as soon as possible.
    This gives mold less time to form on the wet gemmae and, in my opinion, you get healthier plants growing from fresh gemmae.

    Thanks BCK!!!

    I have a question about using perlite in the mix (since i don't currently have sand, and don't want to wait until the NECPS meeting saturday when i'll get some). Did you use just "normal" sized perlite? It seems it would be kind of grainy for something small like pygmies and gemmae...
    There's no 'a' in perlite.

    I use the standard size perlite without a problem in the main soil mix. I use a fine layer of peat on top of the peat/perlite mixture. However, over time the perlite can and usually does start to show itself. When it does, I either leave it alone or remove it if it starts looking bad.

    I personally trust the perlite more than I do sand. I had very bad luck with sand which killed all the gemmea. The sand tested ok with the vinager test. The same peat was used in all pots regardless if sand or perlite was added.

    This photo should help you in seeing the size difference in the perlite and the pygmy dew.
