    I think Snowy Falcon was one to use pure, live LFS.

    I have several pots from lowes and such that used LFS as a medium. I've also had peat several years old sprout new growth. I found live LFS in the big bales of peat I've purchased as well. It dies back during the summer, but always comes back during the winter months. I've also had sucess growing it in a terrium year round. Once you find a place it will grow you'll never run out!
    I always suspect everything could be a trap... thats why I'm still alive

    Thanks for the input, all.

    I'm going to try different mediums; more than one way to skin a cat, so to speak. It seems the consensus is 50/50 peat and sand and if you error, error on the side of more sand (the right kind of sand, too). This is what I've been doing lately, and they seem alright for now, but haven't had the plants long enough. I repot every year anyway, anyway, thanks again.

    p.s. more input is most welcome! !
