Not sure why you would want to use it, it isn't exactly cheaper than most typical growing media choices.

Thanks all. Good to know pool filter sand is silica sand. I once bought mason sand and it turned out to be heavily limestone containing. Ended up using for cacti and Tanganyikan cichlids.

I bought play sand and made up a 50/50 mix with milled sphagnum peat moss. Sowed the seed tonight and put pot in a plastic bag. Bringing it to work tomorrow.

The peat pellets were suggested in The Savage Garden.
