    See? Everyone's cultivation experiences differ. I have used milled sphagnum / sand since the early 1980s and have never experienced algal or moss problems -- unlike other composts I have used from time to time . . .

    I just found this thread on google by chance. Just so happens I took a pic of one of the seedlings today. Orchid bark and LFS as a media mix.
    A year later..

    thanks everyone.
    corky: the net pots definitely helped. But I give all my thanks to the media mix. Orchid bark and LFS is exactly what the seedlings needed to grab hold and grow.
