How long can Perlite last ?
    #1445931 - 04/10/03 10:05 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

How long can perlite last [being damp, etc. etc.] without having to take it out of the chamber before contams start to become rampant?


[using a 10% Hydrogen Peroxide & 90% water mix spray]



thanks! :smile:

H202 is, in fact, commonly known as peroxide? Man, I must be dumb...

I dont think it can become contaminated. It has no nutritional value for mold to feed on. I've been using the same perlite for 6 months now. No contams. Didnt add peroxide either. However the perlite is almost black now from all the spores that have fallen on it.
