FYI dont use the miracle grow brand perlite
    #11341328 - 10/28/09 09:55 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I  was reading the bags of perlite i purchased a few day ago. apparently miracle grow puts plant food in their perlite and that may promote contams in the fc. If you live 25 miles from any store this info might save you an extra trip. Or you may already know this..

I think I saw to rinse it and it will be fine, so I did, and I saw a milky white substance wash away for about 30-45 seconds... *shrug* I got fruits. Using a bobo FC, just knocked random placed and sized holes in it and threw the rinsed perlite in it

its works fine
the only problem i have had with it is when used outside algae will grow on it.
im sure bleach or h2o2 would stop that but it wasn't a problem anyway.

Or it might not matter. And it might have been discussed many, many times.

In fact, when you posted the search engine probably offered you half a dozen 'similar threads'. There's some at the bottom of this page now.

The opinions range from "It's harmless" to "it's Satanic" to worse. Read them all and see what you think. Or just don't buy it.

(Also, it's a lot more expensive compared to bulk perlite from a garden store or hydro shop. But it's easy to find.)

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?
