    I second Outsider's idea about using LFS, but be warned that LFS turns to mush when submerged for long periods of time. If you can put a layer of peat or peat mixed with some aerator (perlite works, but I like ceramic chips myself) in for the first half of the substrate, and then top with LFS, you'll get the benefits of LFS without having to repot as much. In my experience, when peat is covered with LFS it stays moist longer and is easier to rehydrate if it dries out completely.
    Have a good one,

    That's why you buy the GOOD LFS . New Zealand LFS doesn't break down like the ordinary kinds.

    Your seedling won't dry out, whatever you plant it in. All sphagnum moss will turn to 'mush' eventually - it's called peat!

    Thanks.

    Ok, this morning I potted the little seedling in 1 part peat and 1 part perlite. It now sits in a zip lock bag on a window sill.

    actually it would do better outside... put it outside in the sun, but for the first week or so make sure it gets shade. then you can put it out in full sun. have fun! i have a small S. Flava offshoot. its going to be exciting to watch this baby grow.
