    I grow mine in 1:1 peat:coarse silica sand.

    I allow moss (Sphagnum sp. and others) to grow on the surface as it helps prevent algae and slime from establishing themselves.

    Just be careful not to let it overwhelm the Cephalotus.

    You can always pick out excessive LFS.

    I am particularly fond of the use of live sphagnum in the introduction of tissue cultured plants ex vitro . . .
