    Jiffy seed starter kits for VFT seeds

    I got some of the little peat pellets left over from the mini greenhose things to get some LFS started and I was thinking of using them for VFT seeds. Would it be ok to just place maybe like 3 seeds per pellet and keep in the dome by a window? They coule be kept in there with the moss and all grow together.

    Good luck fighting off the fungus and green molds that those little things are packed with...

    I've lost many rare seeds to peat pellets. I'll never use them again.

    I microwaved them, I soaked them with a fungicide; nothing helped.

    Those pellets are lethal I think...

    Just my 2.

    Yeah I just figured I would not use the pellets and just use regular peat moss but use the dome and that try.

    i dont know why, i didnt microwave and use fungicide, and nothing came up. when i microwaved and dipped in fungicide, it started coming up. i coudnt use the dome anymore, so i guess its a waste of money for me. my dad said 23watts(100 watts equivalent) for 15 hour a day is an extra 40$ to the electricity bill and i didnt want to use the dome anymore xD

    They're just a god-awful product. They've killed cactus seedlings, catnip seedlings, vegetable seedlings, CP seedlings... I swear that they must coat the things in heat/bleach/fungicide-resistant bacteria and fungi before shipping them.

    I always, always make my own mix when I can. It's also cheaper.

    I think you're better off sprouting them in live LFS.
