    Here's some of Bob's gemmae (from his last offering) that were planted on 12/14/05.

    I initially had some issues w/ black rot on all the growth points, moving the plants to a drier terrarium fixed 'em right up - didn't lose one.

    Thanks Bob!

    Everything is explainable. The seemingly unexplainable is but a result of our insufficient knowledge.- Hans Brewer

    Great growing. Do you keep them really wet? I mean it seems that there is a thin layer of water on the surface of the soil. BTW, what mix are you using to grow them? Cheers.

    They are growing in a mix of chopped LFS, sand and perlite (mostly perlite and sand), planted in a 2 inch pot. I keep the pot in a tray that is about 1/2 inch deep - this gets refilled with rain water once every week or so when it has evaporated.

    The wet appearance is due to some kind of slime mold or algae... (yummy). The slime doesn't seem to have any effect so far. Hopefully it will go away soon?
