    I also use standard sized perlite in my mix, as well as sand, without a problem. I do not mind the look.
    I am just like a Super Hero, but without the power or motivation.................and the funky suit.

    D muscipula,
    The perlite I use is bulk packed for the green house I bought it at. They then scoop it out into a small bag when you come in and ask for some. It has every size from dust on up to almost pea size pieces. Big pieces of perlite that interfered with young plants, I removed or crushed into smaller pieces. I would use whatever you usually use as long as it helps keep the peat from compacting.

    Thank you very much BCK for the generous supply of gemmae! They are already starting to form tiny roots.

    ktulu, the roots won't be a problem if you use a little care putting the gemmae onto the peat so as to not dammage the root. It will eventually grow down into your potting mix on it's own.

    BCK, thanks for the gemmae, which arrived a few days ago. They were in such good shape that I'm hoping that all -- or nearly all -- will grow.
