rancid smell from perlite?
    #11200166 - 10/07/09 02:03 PM (8 years, 12 days ago)

i just recently opened up a new bag of perlite and i was rinsing it when i smelt a horrible odor that smelt like cat urine times 10!  after rinsing very well, the smell died off.  i put it in FC but no cakes in it yet.  i wanted to make sure it was okay.  also note that i use miracle grow® brand perlite.  could the smell be the miracle grow? how come i never noticed this odor in the past?

lol prolly a cat pissed on it.. :smile:

perlite is not nutritious, if it is rinsed well, and smells OK now, no worries..

you can also rince it in a 5 gallon bucked with a cap full of bleach, that will kill the odor too..

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Just run some H2o2 trough out your perlite then give it a good rinse. or you could bleach and rinse or do both its up to you
