    #2433011 - 03/15/04 12:25 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

How often shold you change perlite? I ask this because a friend just had to throw away a whole casing cause it was infested w/ green contams... And i was thinking maybe it was because of the old perlite (bout 2 months) he was using. Thanks

You can reused perlite, you just have to boil it, or soak it in bleach once a month or so. Rinse well, then reuse.

If you don't top it up with fresh h2o2 once a week, it can harbour contams.

Well, as you want to sterilise it, a good squirt is needed.
You cant really over do it, as you can rinse it off anyway, once its had a nice long soak (say 2 hours)


As to h202, same again, as nothing is growing or touching the perlite, just add enougth to kill the baddies. Say 10ml of h2o2
a week.
