    ''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]

    congratulations FTG!!

    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.

    WHY ME?! Two days ago, my friend was out in the backyard watering the garden for me, and she didn't realize that the two trays of VFT seedlings were sitting RIGHT THERE next to the flowerbed. ***sigh*** Well, you know where this is leading. Well, I flushed out the pots three times already and changed the water in the trays two times, and everything is... fair. Except they look a little... iffy, and one has a couple blackening leaves [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] . Any tips on how to save them? I'm desperate.

    Thumbs up

    I think you are overreacting. Just keep watering them with your water and they should be ok. I doubt one watering will kill them. And all that flushing may be doing them more harm than good as they are in a pretty fragile state. Just remember, some of us don't even have seedlings.

    I'm not worried about the overwaterring at all... guess what my friend was watering the garden with when the water got on the seedlings? Garden hose. Garden hose = Chlorine water.

    congrats on your new sprouts! They should be fine. one tap watering wouldn't do anything to them. and besides, its the minerals that hurt them, not the chlorine [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    the flushing out 3 times might do harm, as someone else said, they are in a fragile state right now. just baby them for a while, be patient, and they should be fine. think of it as a natural 'weeding out' of the weak seedlings...
