Perlite question...
    #2211029 - 12/31/03 03:01 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

How often should it (perlite) be replaced, does it go bad, or can it be reuse if cleaned, and if so, how does one clean it? Thanks for the feedback. -CH-

I reuse mine cuz im poor. I bake it in the oven for 2 hours at 350 degrees. I dont change it very often tho cuz everytime i replace the water that evaporated i use water with H202 in it.

In my opinion you should be aware about all the contamination problems coming from an indiscrinate utilization of the perlite.
If you are using perlite mixed with water in the terrarium to increase the realtive humidity I would sugest you to keep your eyes over the bacteria that could form in there after some days...

Well put. Imo perlite should be changed at least once during the grow cycle, you can resuse it but perlite isn't that expensive and the amount you should be using should make that bag last for at least a little while.

If it's stinky, change it.
