    Hi everyone, I rescently came by some seeds for this nep, and I want to make sure I have their cultivation info right before they sprout (if).

    Lowland, acidy soil (pete/perlite should work?)
    swamped all the time (tray method) -- this is what I am most concerned about...the water. I read that in nature they're found with their roots often submerged, but I wanted to check here before I planned such a wet home for them.

    I would not keep seed waterlogged.. Seed and seedlings are much more prone to pathogens than mature plants.

    Your mix should be fine.. keep the seed moist and warm in moderate light.
