    I really wanted to get the full experience of growing phrag. besseae. One week in and they are all still alive and seem to be doing well. There seemed to be a myriad of options but I opted for a compot with orchiata, perlite, charcoal mix and a little dash of oyster shell. The annoying part was I the medium I ordered seemed to be several different sizes and I did not have time to get more uniform bag. Big thank you to Tom at Fox Valley and Ray at First Rays. This community has been a great resource for delving deeper into phrags.

    Looking good. Be care though... success can be addictive.

    Hey,
    Looks great! Be careful of dampening off. Good luck.

    And sure enough... dampening off. Lost all the smaller ones. Leaves were looking fine and roots were separated. Cleaned everything up and repotted in new compot. I am hoping I caught it in time for the rest to recover.

    There are fungicide sprays that work well to prevent that. I use Ridomil Gold
