Hello Michael,

We work with three different media. Most of the smaller growing species are in pure long-strand spahgnum. A few of the very tricky species, notably BakoaÂand some of the smallest BucephalandraÂare in pure medium-grade (3 mm) Perlte. The robust species, such as the colonial SchismatoglottisÂand the large-growingÂHomalomenaÂare in a mineral soil comprising 3 parts locally-sourced red volcanic soil (pH ca 4.5) and 1 part coarse washed river sand. We favour plastic pots of the Perlite and Âsphagnum cultures and unglazed fired terracotta for the mineral soil plants.

Best wishes

Very interesting concerning the plantlets.
In looking at the picture, what kind of growing media you are using there? Some kind of Aggregate, perlite, or a combination of ingredients ?
Thank you,
Michael Kolaczewski
