Unwashed sand fine for germination?

Recommended Posts

I have a pot of drosera madagascariensis seeds and I used unwashed sand and peat. I’ve heard that washing peat helps with algae, but washing sand is necessary. Could I grow them in the pot ‘til their big enough to pluck out with tweezers, and then put them on washed media? I guess I’m just wondering if it’ll be fine for maybe a month two

Young seeds or seedlings are always more susceptible to impurities in the growing media than mature or adult plants.  Seeds may not even germinate.

Kind regards,  Rob
