Darren,

I've always had good luck with a mix of peat moss and coarse (clean)
construction sand. Pasteurized to 180F in the microwave for five minutes. Give
me a call if you want to discuss more in person

ow humidified peat without additives, soaked, squeezed then a few minutes
n the microwave. I cover the containers while they cool also.
I've tried other mixes out of curiosity but find pure peat best.
Cheers, John.

 Hello Everyone,



 I wonder if you could tell me please which medium you are using for
owing
 spore pots?



 I have had some success using "Seed Starting Jiffy-Mix", but recently
he
 supplier switched to "Black Gold Seedling Mix" instead. Both use
phagnum
 moss as the main ingredient, but virtually all of the pots sown with
Black
 Gold" have developed algae on top of the medium, which does not seem
 to
e
 the case with "Jiffy-Mix".



 Thanks.



 Regards,



 Darren Lloyd
