This is a shot of my samphire bed.
As well as to direct planting with seeds I decided to try cuttings.
I chose the market instead of Waitrose because the market samphire was loose and the other was prepackaged in nitrogen.
Sponges,45* scalpel cut, cut rooting powder. About 50% success rate.
They are in a F/D media bed.
I have just returned from a weeks  holiday and the fungal growth is from slug pellets ( Fish safe, Iron based) I scattered before leaving.
Unsure. Any advice welcome.

I presoaked the sponges in 1PPT saline and my system at the moment is running at about the same level.
