Perlite cakes
    #1272970 - 02/03/03 07:20 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Well, if you had read my previous post you all know I screwed up and used perlite (instead of verm) in my first cakes. I thought this was a lost cause but I stuck them in the terrarium anyway. Today I woke up, and there are pins all over one of the cakes :smile: who the hell would have thought?

Not only will it work in cakes but also as a substitute for verm in casings.

Glad I keep a log :smile:

Here is the exact ingredients I used.

2.5 cups BRF

8 cups perlite

2 2/3 cups water

1 Table spoon honey (disolved in the boiling water)

I also used fish declorinator.

I am posting a pic as proof, but it is of low quality I will try to get a better one when the first flush is complete. (That is if it completes)

Do you think they will be ok?

I threw away an old grow kit today and interestingly enough, it was a perlite cake.
Who'd a thunk it!

I be damned you learn something new everyday. I can't believe they grew off of perlite. The boy has the force!

The kits I know have colonized rye sandwiched between a layer of perlite and vermiculite

I am sorry to hear that. The avatar is actually the graphic from "pitbull" video games. So I think you'r racist group ripped that logo off from them. Kinda odd to point the finger at me for a WIDELY know symbol. I am the farthest thing from racist... Do you see my tittle? It says "Juggalo" Do you know a Juggalo is a person who listen to ICP? Do you know that ICP's music is focused on demoting bigory and racism? So for the record let me clear this up also. I am one of the best APBT breeders in the USA, and I run a LARGE pit bull rescue. This means I take dawgs that have been fought and rehabilitate them. I have been on several shows and conducted several interviews on breed specific legislation. I love all pits, just for the record so this is not misconstrued as me being a dogfighter next....

WTF?

Thank you guys... I really appreciate it. This may be getting off topic, but I do belive my reputation is on topic. By the way all the money I spend on food, shelter, training time, ect. comes from my own pocket out of love for the breed. Magesh, nice little lady there :smile: VooDoo, your correct.... It's
