In attempts to not hijack DJ's thread further, I'll be dumping all of my Drosophyllum adventures here, so far 0 germination 5 days in, as expected, but I check every day just in case.
Interesting to see the soil up close like that though! If you are curious about the tan colored it's about a cm layer of finely crushed (milled between the fingers?) LFSM. The red is lava rock, white is perlite, and black is some hardwood and softwood charcoal.
Here's the peat pot itself, there are two, one with a mixture of peat, and one with a mixture of coconut fiber, but you can't tell due to the processed LFSM on top.
