    @ Mobile: I'd say the first is still doing well! I had to scroll up and do a double take at how much growth it has put on. Is 100% peat what you prefer growing these guys in then? Also, do you keep your tray wet or allow brief empty periods? Cephs are new to me and I am trying to gather as much info from different growers as possible.

    100% peat is the only option I have found with this growing method, as adding any aggregate makes the soil loose so it won't stay vertical. Peat can be compressed into shape. As you can see from the pictures, the plants seem to like it this way.

    My watering method is to use a pressure sprayer and drench the soil from the top down, allowing the excess to run off into the saucer. I spray both the plants and the soil. Until moss has grown on the peat surface, care has to be taken to ensure that watering does not wash it away.

    I've always wanted to do something like this! I was going to do something with a 10 gallon tank, but this is so much better.
