enough so it fills 2"-3" of the bottom. change it every few months.

1" layer on the botto is plenty. peoples opinions vary but 1/2" is good IMO.

change it once it gets saturated with spores. hint- dont let your caps sporulate on teh cakes, pick them before they start to drop UNLESS youre making prints. ive never had problems with it contaminating, just add some H2O2 every so often and i never set my cakes on the perlite. i use ball plastic lids filled with moist vermiculite and set the cakes on those. use the water straw tek (where you stick half a straw into the top of the cake and fill with water to keep it hydrated) and youll be sooooo happy :smile:


--------------------
Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!
BUCKETS BRIGADE left hand man!!!
