    Yes I got my nep clipping in a perlite/water mixture. Mainly to keep them standing up straight. My nep was on it's way out so I figured it's time to try a salvage.

    I don't even think Capensis needs that kind of germination conditions. I just knock the seeds into pots and let them grow. But it is good practice for harder germinating plants.

    If you are somewhere where they sell cinder it is even better if you mix in some cinder..
    I like perlite but it does float... Capensis does not need any good conditions like 40F minimum with some light.(happened to me)

    the way they process the peat...they dont deliberately put fungus in the pellets...it just shows up.

    In the future, though, you can nuke the peat in the microwave before using it and kill most of the living organisms that may be along for the ride.

    Make sure the peat is moist/wet before heating in the microwave oven or you could start a fire.

    If the mold/fungus is a saprophyte it only eats dead stuff then no worries. If not, well then you have a problem.

    LFS when first rewet sometimes develops a white fuzz that goes away after a few days. It seems to do no harm to plants and seedlings.
