I filled the cells of the flat 3/4 of the way with the usual potting soil and put 1/2" or so of the seed starting mix I got at the Natural Gardener on top. That way, I can conserve the more expensive seed starting mix while still giving the seeds plenty of it to sprout in.

Happenings in the greenhouse
I just planted the Red Shield hibiscus and Luna Pink Swirl hibiscus seeds that I had soaking. They'd already sprouted a few days ago ~ hope leaving them to soak that long even after sprouting doesn't affect them negatively. I noticed a couple of the roots of the Red Shield either broke off or were mushy. :( I filled out the flat with some Bughatti lettuce.
