    I think that it's live sphagnum that's antifungal - I'm quite certain that dead sphagnum is a mold magnet.

    I think I potted my neppies in peat/LFS/perlite/orchid bark. There may have been vermiculite involved as well. Honestly, its been a couple years, and I didn't right down the recipe, which was stupid of me. The plants seem happy enough (re: not dead). My understanding is that there's a lot of leeway with neppy soil mixes, at least with the less temperamental ones. The soil needs to be thoroughly aerated, of course, and clean, but apart from that I think you can take more or less equal portions of some of what I used, and I understand pumice, charcoal, and lava rock are supposed to be okay too, sterilize it, and chuck it in a pot.

    My plants grow next to windows and have compact flourescent bulbs in clip lamps pointed at them.

    And there's an electric space heater involved now because I'm tired of fighting over the thermostat with my roommates, the heat fascists.

    Nope, my neps all grow open-air in a basement room. The window is even open to the outside all the time. However, the air here is much more humid than the air in Colorado. I wouldn't try the same thing there, unless you can raise the room humidity sufficiently.

    LOL. Tell us how you really feel!

    I don't use any LFS in my mixes either. I do use this orchid moss stuff that I think is really similar.
