    Yes, it is silica sand. I washed it out completely to get rid of any minerals and salts.

    Right I got that part from the original message. But where from?
    The silica sand I get from pool supply stores looks like crap and even though it says mesh 20 it is anywhere from 16 to 60...

    Oh I see... :P

    I got it from Home Depot as "Decor sand". The smaller print says "silica" and the brand is Stonemason.

    Otherwise they seem to grow well in any of the common CP planting substrates.
    Too much water causes crown rot. I lost several this year do to that. It excess water is avoided, none will rot.

    Devon: please let me know if you ever have any more "Fl All Red" seed. I'm looking for different red filliformis from Florida.
