    It sounds like the classic example of opportunistic mosses taking advantage of the micronutrients available in your mix. Did you rinse the sand and peat before use, or sterilize it? I suggest you commence a light top spraying of the medium until the green leaches out, and keep repeating the process at least daily. Keep the mist fine, and try not to disturb the seeds. Once the mosses take hold they will choke out the seedlings.

    That doesn't sound too good, the seeds may be adversely affected, but think positively. It may be that the testa has a coating of algae and the seeds will still germinate. I guess time will tell. If you need more seeds to experiment with, I have a crop maturing right now of the clumping type typical form that you are welcome to when they pop. Good luck with your project!

I looked closer at them with a magnifying glass and a saw little bright green protrusions, about the size of a seed, coming out of the ends of at least two of the seeds! WOOTWOOT!!! WOOWOO!!! WOOHOO!!! ***dances around like an idiot***
