Casing with perlite or geolite?
    #1942338 - 09/22/03 10:22 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I have heard that mycelium grows over geolite well. I also know it holds water fairly well. I would like to assume that its pretty contam resistant. How do you think casing with crushed geolite would work? I'm unable to try anything right now because of living restraints.

I don't think it would be worth the cost. There are too many cheaper things that are proven to work already. Also I'm reasonably certain that geolite wicks moisture off of it's surface and therefore would eventually dry out the casing. Vermiculite and coco coir hold moisture in and therefore keep the casing moist.
