Aquatic plant soil?
    #1916299 - 09/14/03 08:45 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Anyone used "Aquatic plant soil" as an alt to Perlite in the Poor mans pod tek? It's a mineral fire kilned to a ceramic. Looks like a small brown gravel. I ask because i am having a hell of a time finding Perlite. (did not have this problem last year)
The Perlite i am finding is enriched with Miracle Gro.
Don't Know if this would be good or bad.

I am sooooo sorry! Seriously. That was cool of you to point that out.
(and in a polite way.) Thanks.

Yes judging by what the bag says i do believe it abrobs water.
What about the Perlite enriched with Miracle Gro, good or bad?
Is anyone else having a hard time finding Perlite?
It's funny, i usually just hand mist, never really used any Perlite, but i am interested in the Poor mans pod, and now i cant find Perlite to save my ass. :frown:

hehe, you might be able to wash the miracle grow out of the perlite, and i don't see why you couldn't just use the aquatic plant soil, let us know how it works, whichever way you go. btw, have your first 5 shrooms man.

miracle-gro sucks for shrooms, ive never heard of it working at all. i forget the reason but i think its just too many growth hormones geared toward a photosynthic plant, nothing beneficial for mushrooms. hell it probably has anti-fungal additives.


--------------------
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!!!
