    Talking

    After using it on some of my rooted, as well as unrooted, cuttings, I have to warn all of you not to buy the LFS from Jimei Nursery, Joan Road. It's probably from China. Stick to FEF Canadian LFS.

    Reasons:
    1. Lots of algae growth
    2. Lots of fungus growth
    3. Sphagnum doesn't regenerate as the Canadian LFS
    4. Cuttings tend to rot in it; probably due to the fungi spores present [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html312/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    If any of you bought it, pour hot boiling water over it before use to kill off the algae/fungi spores.

    Hello all again.... happy CNY to all!

    Anyway, I've the Canadian LFS soaked and in the sun... still no growth after 1 mth. About how long would it take for it to grow?

    Cindy: Isn't the LFS offered by FEF imported from NZ?

    ebeyonder:Hi, welcome back! where have you been? the NZ LFS from FEF generates in about 2 weeks, try keeping it wet, bright and cool, that's how I do it.

    2 weeks? Looks like I've failed again. What are the first signs of growth like? The whole thing turns green or little strands of green?
