Yeah, well too bad that's not YOUR perlite tek. People have been using perlite for a while now using the same methods described here.

However, when the moment came she would be too busy evaporating herself to notice it.

don't be a jerk.
never said i invented it but there are other ways commonly used such as the layer of water under the perlite.
this is my method, it's the way i do it.

hippie, i'll have to disagree on two parts. first, the standing water thing, which i replied to in another thread. in my experience, not having standing water will almost immediately make the perlite dry out. the bottom part of the perlite isn't humidifying the air, it's keeping the top layer of perlite damp. it does a much better job of this if there's more water there.

second, you DO NOT need a tightly sealed terrarium for perlite. one of the things i love about perlite, is it humidifies SO well, you can prop open your lid to help with air exchange. i've had the lid of my terrarium proped open 2 inches before and still had adequate humidity.

i would say the only thing correct in your tek is the fact that higher temps help, and that more surface area is better.

just my opinion,

"Link-Link-Link-Link!!!!!" (This is where we should all do the wave or something.)

I have to agree with Link, I use a hygrometer to verify my humidity, and if I forget to add water (I usually use 1 1/2" perlite with about 3/4" of water ) the humidity in my terrarium will will plumit in as little as 3 hrs to about 55% and all visible growth will stop.

I gotta agree that from my experience a little standing water(I use about 1/4" deep h2o2) has helped my perlite do its job better, if not too well. I had to install a splashguard for the cakes in there because of water dripping off the top with no spraying whatsoever.

think whatever you want,
i don't really care.
i've grown more cakes out on perlite than all of you put together.
have any of you read the latest edition of the pf tek published by fanaticus.com ?
that's my name in there, my work cited by pf.
top that, wannabes.
not to mention that in less than 2 months i've built DroolDonkey into a website of nearly 300 registered members
and ~ 6000 posts.
or HippieHaven, my homepage, with ~9000 hits.
( http://www.geocities.com/SouthBeach/Marina/7382 )
where's your site, link ?
or chester ?
or loathe ?
heh.

'ooooohhhhh, i have a web pag. i started a shroomery wannabee sight, i know all there is about shrooms' whatever, dude. i don't deny that you know a lot about cultivation. it's just that in this instance, i disagree, and it seems that most other people that have used perlite do also. i don't care how much you know. all the knowledge in the world doesn't mean shit when it comes to actuall results, and most people just don't get the same results as you. doesn't mean your tek's wrong. just means it's not usefull to anyone but you. thanks for trying, though.

what 'most people' do matters very little as to what is the truth of the matter.
but thanks for trying.

don't you think you're being just a bit extravagant tossing out the phrase " most people do this" etc. ?
how do you know what most people do ?
i know that plenty of people do it the way i posted, even loathe said as much in his first post to this thread.
and it works for them.
but you never answered my question.
where's the Link's site, page, tek, whatever ?
but thanks anyway for trying.

Yo, Hippie, I thought that must be you that PF mentions in his tek. BTW, no dis intended, I simply stated that some standing water is doing the trick better for me. I have tried it both ways, and I challenge anybody else to do the same and not take ANYBODY's word for it. Just try it and see which works best for you. If everybody keeps following the same teks and there's no experimentation, I fear that ALL the shroom sites will die out within a few years because they'll all be the same. For me, discovery is half the fun!

IIMikeyII, You just mix your water and H2O2 together, I like 4:1 water :tongue:eroxide but heavier or light will work. Then just add to moisted perlite in bottom of terrarium untill you have about 1/2 the perlite depth. Or follow Hippee3's method and use it to moisten the perlite. You need to experiment to see what will work for you. You can try different level and you will see what works best. Unlike a certain other, experiment with tek's to grow shroom, not ON shrooms.

PsilOwiz and chester are right. everyone just needs to experiment and see which works better.

hippie, i know what most people do by reading the bulletin board and seeing how people describe to other people on how to use perlite.
i don't have a page. i don't have a tek. so what? i fail to see what that means. oh boy, i haven't written any teks. whoop dee doo. you seem to be reaching there, buddy.

ok, this thread has just about turned into a flame, so i think i'm gonna close it. but, i don't want it to seem like i'm doing it to get the last word, so i'll let you say what you wish. if you don't want me to lock it, let me know, but i'm done argueing.

no problem, link.
if you didn't want a flame,
you might have chosen your words a bit more diplomatically.
but enough of that.
mikey, just rinse the perlite with water until it can absorb no more.
then put it in your aquarium. a little peroxide, about 1/2 cup should suffice, dumped in with it.
and a half inch is not enoug, go with 2 or 3 inches.

Come to my site, then, Hippie
Click Here!

C'mon, man, just because I didn't exploit someone else's tek to write my own doesn't mean I don't know what I'm talking about.

LOATHE'S PERLITE TEK

1. Put perlite in the bottom of the terrarium. 1 - 2 inches should suffice.

2. Put water in the perlite.

3. Wait 4 hours for maximum humidity.

~~~

There, big fucking deal.
