The nearest place to me that carries perlite is a 45 minute drive. So, I've seen some people on here use 100% LFS as soil for neps.
I don't get it. LFS is long stranded sphagnum, yes? Because the stuff I have is all dry and stranded like old spaghetti. Is there some ancient secret to using this stuff as a soil media?
I don't see how it will support the plant at all. Do I chop it up and pack it in? Do I just stick the roots in an empty space and hope they take hold?
