Good morning, Jim:

Are there inorganic peats?  Why do you suggest not using the organic peats in 
seed starting...wet conditions and too fine peat?

Is there a mail order source for the mix Fafard 3B?  An educated guess is 
that this product contains no peat, correct?

I usually use Pro-mix, and I add perlite.  My seeds are in a nursery flat 
with a fine mesh bottom for drainage.  The flat is put into a ziplock type 
bag.  One really does not have to water again.  However, I mist the flat 
using a diluted fish emulsion and a seaweed brew about every 7-10 days.  I 
empty the water from the bag to prevent algae build up.
