|''Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss" is technically correct..|
because PEAT moss *is* decompsed spagnum!
although technically, if its now peat, it isnt really sphagnum anymore, even though it once was, so I guess it ok to call peat "spagnum peat" because it is kinda both..
So peat IS also spagnum, but spagnum is NOT peat because spagnum hasnt turned into peat yet! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]
FTG, if you are getting some kind of mold/fungus on your seeds, I would guess you arent giving the pot enough direct light and/or ventelation..are you treating the VFT seeds the exact same way as your adult VFTs? the pot of seeds should get just as much light as the adult plants..lots of direct sun! they wont burn if they are exposed to the sun BEFORE and AS they sprout..if they sprouted in shade and *then* you moved them into sun, they would burn..thats why its best to sprout them in "normal" VFT conditions, so they are fully adapted to the direct sunlight "from birth"..then they will never burn.
keeping them out of sunlight because they seem "delicate" will only make them weak..(im not sure that is what you are doing..im just saying, in general, not accusing you of anything! *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
(edit)..'doh! I replied from page one, and so I didnt see FTG's reply about the germanating until AFTER I posted!
so never mind about the mold then!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
o_O um, peat is any rotted vegitaion in a pure state. You have to say Sphagnum peat or you could use the wronge stuff. Granted we don't call all rotted plant material peat, but a lot of it we do. Theirs palm peat, coco peat, coconut bark peat, fern peat... just to name a few I've seen.
There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.
