    use 1 pt peat and also 2 pt perlite? I think that's the soil mix that plants are grown in. I want to know the soil mixt I should use to sprout the seeds on. Thanks,

    well I'm going to put the seeds on long fibered sphagnum. Since it takes months to germinate I'll keep everybody updated.

    If you'd like to know the best soil mix...do a search for the native habitat of B. gigantea. Try to mimic those conditions.

    There may be different ways to grow the plant but its natural conditions would be a good start.
