Help with drosophyllum seeds!

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody. Today I was going to sow the seeds of drosophyllum in a mix of sand, perlite and vermiculite. I poured this mixture into peat pots and put them in a bowl of rainwater. It took several hours and I decided to measure the ppm of water in a bowl with pots. The device showed 61 ppm !!! So it should be? Or pots of peat are bad?

61 ppm will not harm Drosophyllum..

It's good. However, I do not understand how such indicators turned out.

Salts in your sand, maybe?

It is either vermiculite or a peat pot. I washed quartz sand with distilled water, he could not so affect the readings of the device.

It could also be coming from the peat pots. Those things aren't great.

I would defer planting the seed until September. The cool nights are one of the triggers for successful germination.....
