House Plant - Tacca integrifolia
In october I recieved 14 white tacca seeds and planted 8 of them in peat pellets and 6 in a damp paper towel sitting on hydroton, both groups sealed in plastic containers and set on a heating mat that warms them to around 95f - 100f. I checked friday 3 of the seeds in the paper towel have germinated.
I figure I can just set the pellets in soil once they get a little bigger but I was thinking of going passive hydro with the ones growing on the paper towel. My questions are, how do I transfer the seedling out of the paper towel or do I just cut the towel into sections that have one seed each and set them onto hydroton?
Is there something better as a growing medium? I have a number of other plants growing in pots of sphagnum sitting in an inch or two of water/nutrient solution, (I use general hydroponics) Mostly Philodendrens but a few orchids and a schefflera. I know the sphagnum will only last 2 or 3 years at best.
Any info and tips for passive hydro will be greatly appreciated.
