    It works but not as well from my experience. I got about 6% germination rate from shredded LFS when I tried it. I think the problem is that there is less seed to media contact when you have LFS. Maybe I didn't shred it fine enough? I don't have a ton of experience with nep seeds.

    ive used a variety of mixes, my most recent batch being on straight LFS, not shredded or anything and had good results on 2 of the 3 batches.....
    the other mix i used was shredded live LFS/peat/perlite in a 50/25/25 ratio.....
    i think that the sand and peat mix would probably work really well as N101 has posted for, most likely, the reason dash has said, more contact with the media....i also hear that pure peat works as well as cocopeat with peat and lfs, ive heard of a ton of mixes that various people use....
    but of course, do not use miracle grow....

    I use pure cocopeat. It comes compressed in bricks. I like it because it doesn't grow the carpet moss as quickly as peat.

    Do you use that stuff as bricks or do you loosen it up first ?

    One brick makes a whole 5 gallon bucket of this stuff!

    The seedlings I have going are N. (Viking x raff) x Briggsiana, N. (raff x amp) x Briggsiana, N. mirabilis x Briggsiana, and N. burbidgea. More have yet to sprout, including candy stripe Veitchii.
