    I have found several kinds available blond peat moss, dark peat moss, and Baltic peat moss
    I used Sphagnum peat moss. I don't think it really maters, unless something (fertilizer) has been added it's pretty much inert. I sift out the bigger twigs and lumps before using it.

    I would use without fertilizer. That way I know what's going in, I put the fertilizer in the water.

    I would add another 1 1/2 gallons of vermiculite, I use equal parts of peat moss and vermiculite (50/50). If cost is a problem, use pearlite. I don't think pearlite holds any moisture, vermiculite does hold moisture. I think the only other thing that vermiculite or pearlite do in the peat moss, is to keep it from settling (packing) too much in the cells over the 6-8 weeks that seedlings are in there.

    hi costs are not a problem, I'm just afraid we can be speaking about different particle sizes, can you post a pic of your mix please?

    This is from last year, but it's the same mix. I'll try to get a better picture in the morning.

    Re: Tell me about float tray systems

    back, now I need another advise, are we supposed to water the trays from the top the first time? or I should just wait the moisture to go up?
