    well ive transplanted it into coconut fiber witha top dressing of chilien LFS. i think part of my problem is my peat. this last bale has been very inconsistant. some is really good. some turns to a sludge when kept constantly wet. the roots look good so it may survive yet.

    Peat quality varies widely, which is why I go with the leaching by rains. Making pots up in advance is very good prorocol: if there are going to be moss and algae issues they become evident BEFORE you plant. I do rinse everything (twice) before I make up the pots. Thanks for reminding me, I need to make up some 50 pots to get ready for the winter. It is no fun trying to rinse peat when the water is just above freezing, and I will need a supply for the gemmae season this fall/winter. MAking up the pots now means they will have time to leach in the rain until it freezes out.

    i wish i could do that here but its quite windy an average of 4 or 5 days of every week and we get little rain. im hoping a combination coconut fiber and LFS will be a decent substitute for most species. its a lil coarser but not much. maybe add peat in some cases if the plants need a higher ph. my main problem is ill use about enough for about 2 or 3 4-packs. one cell will be fine but the one next to it turns to sludge. luckly its only happened about 3 times. fortunatly, at least till this G. filliformis, its been a really common species and nothing to bad has happened. but now i have a picky species and it happens to be a cell that turned to sludge. oh well. not much i can do about it now. hopefully this coconut fiber solves most problems.
