    Maxsea Affecting LFS

    I've looked through old threads about Maxsea but I haven't found info about the specific concentrations that prevent dead LFS from breaking down...

    I used to use 2 tsps per gallon but my sphagnum broke down quickly even when I flushed the pots a few hours after. I know I was probably using too much...

    Does anyone know or settled on a good concentration that prevents dead sphagnum breakdown?

    Thanks!

    Just for fun, here's a photo of a stenophylla truncata hybrid:

    I also use 1/4 tsp. per gallon. I have not seen any break down in the dry LFS. It makes my live LFS grow like gangbusters.

    I agree. I use that concentration (sometimes up to 1/2 tsp.) and I've never seen LFS grow so fast.
