perlite frustration
    #1825705 - 08/18/03 12:47 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

sometimes my friend goes to fan his terrarium and there is condensation on the sides from the perlite and other days there isn't any. most of the time there isn't any condensation. he's confused about how often he should add water and how to know when. how much is too much. there's about 1.5 inches of perlite and +-.75 inches water.

As a general rule your water level should be no higher than 1/4 the level of your perlite for maximum effectiveness.

put the perlite in a strainer and run under the faucet till completely wet, let it drain and place in terrarium.
