amazon.com has sooo many supplies! but two i hadnt seen before...

peat plugs with lime added and wrapped in a netting. sounds reasonable to colonize.....

http://www.amazon.co...glance&n=286168

"The Jiffy-7 pellet is made from sphagnum peat from specially selected peat bogs. Lime and a special fertilizer with a low ammonium content are added to the peat in order to stimulate growth. The pellets have a pH of approximately 5.3 and are wrapped in a thin, degradable net." 42mm pellets.


a bag of trace elements?!?
http://www.amazon.co...glance&n=286168
azomite soil additive: selenium, vanadium, bizmuth, chromium, calcium,iron, magesium, 67 total trance elements.

been reading that trace elements are great to have in the water. but are these helpful to mush growth?

eheim substrat pro? there is so many thing i hva e no clue about.
http://www.amazon.co...lance&n=1055398

Biologically intensive filter media. Converts ammonia and nitrite into relatively non-toxic nitrate. With over 450 ml per litre (18,300 sq. ft. per U.S. gal.) EHEIM SUBSTRAT is a specially designed sintered glass. Bacteria are able to stick better to a surface which has a complex pore system. SUBSTRAT has been specially developed to offer optimum sites for bacteria colonization. The effectiveness of these bacteria is linked to how much oxygen and toxins can flow by. With faster decomposition of toxins compared to other media.

thoughts anyone?

jiffy peat PELLETS, are finer peat than you get in bags, and here's the kicker--
Jiffy Pellets are pre-innoculated with Trichoderma

jah
ever notice the green meanie if ya let yer starts go too long,
or put the thing on the floor to germinate in them, it shows up quicker.

i believe "rapid rooters" also have trich..defiitely some sort of beneficial microorganism

i found that peat pellets need to be kept on a shelf 12" + off the floor,
with direct sunlight at least part of the day, and h2o2 in the mist & water..

trich is not bad for plants, in fact its beneficial. i like to keep it at bay b/c
some times im not around to fan and it provides too much moisture and the seedlings damp-off.
i also HATE handling trich. -
havin to coax a taproot through a trich-ridden mesh/peat interface is a BITCH
not to mention flat-out disguisting
(especially when you have oyster cultures starting in the other room)

keep tabs on them, fan, mist h2o2/water to the cover daily, water only when they fully dry out (species dependant), and do the 12+ " off the ground thing and i assure you you wont see it pop up much, maybe under the mesh but not on the open surface :) hope this helps yas

be well

I've always worked with the assumption that the majority of mold spores and things were within this first foot off the floor. Thus, I try to keep all projects off the floor to cut down on contamination. I've never seen my pete pellets develope trich, even if I've overwatered them and they were in a "bad air" type room.
