    Or put a pinch of the milled stuff in a plastic bag or cup with seeds mixed in it. Damp of course, with most of the water squeezed out.
    Ok, but can I put peat/perlite and have a top layer of the milled stuff? Plus, I'm not sure what a food processor, so would chopping it into fine little pieaces still work?

    I remember someone saying that stratifying with moist sand worked really well for them.

    How about algae? I have seedlings in pure milled sphagnum and it greened up almost immediately. I've moved them to a different tank with more circulation, but they were getting a breeze in the other tank as well.

    Capensis, Mosser Lee makes a bag of milled sphagnum that I picked up for about $3 at a garden center. Of course, that is the stuff that turned green for me but it is commercially available milled moss.

    Algae doesn't seem to bother the seedlings. I scoop off what I can with a spoon and let the media dry out as much as possible for a day. What it does to germinating seeds I haven't had any experience with.

    If you have enough seeds and the patience by all means experiment and see which technique you like or works best for you.

    I'll be receiving about 30 seeds and one thing I need to know is how long I need to stratify. Does 5 weeks sound good?

    What species? 4 weeks for most everything. 5-6 weeks for S. purpurea.

    You can chop LFS by hand but it's a PITA. Just shake shake out the dust from the bottom of the bag. That's what I do until it runs out.
