    I think everyone has their favorite media mix. For nep seeds I like 50/50 peat/sand because it hold moisture well and the seeds stay in contact with the media well. I have read that other folks use chopped LFS; I think it is just something you have to experiment with until you find what works for your conditions.

    Looking good there Ellisonk001, as per usual for you.

    I like the peristomes on your Mixta and Raff.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    thez_yo: The truncata K&Q is a very recent arrival. I really like it and it seems to like my conditions....
