Geolite (Hydroton) sterilization
    #1665835 - 06/26/03 11:34 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

AFOAF is building a poor mans pod. He is wondering if he needs to do anything to sterilize the hydroton before he puts it in, or does he just dump it in the bottom and add water and h2o2?

From reading about the Poor Mans Pod I have learned that no sterilization is nessasary, and neither is H2O2...the cakes or casings can sit directly on the Geolite (Hydroton) as well without any worries...Magash can back that up I'm sure, or someone else who uses this set up.

Just poor it in there about 4 inches in depth and add water until the water reaches 2 inches in depth and add more water every 2 weeks and you should be great...this is all in reading tho, no personal experience on my end.
