Do you do anything to the perlite before you put it on the bottom of the terrarium

put it in an oven safe container and add some water to it and bake it at 165-180'f for 3 hours -let it cool and remove from oven and use.

I guess you could,never tried that myself-always easier in the oven.
You could nuke it in the microwave also

I dont do anything to mine either.h2o+h2o2+perlite-thats it.

Thats why I said-"pasteurize it?" note the question mark. 
You may want too (pasteurize)though after useing it for awhile-peroxide doesnt last long,but it works good.


But it may be wise to do so "just for safe measure against contams"

:cool:

just remember to change it once in a while. i was fruiting mushrooms on the same perlite for 7 months and i didn't realize it went dry and rancid.

Just thinking out loud here...

I know that iodine can be used in place of h2o2 in a lot of cases and doesn't break down as quickly (I was advised by someone who knows to add some to the water in the base of my tub-in-tub as its a better option than peroxide)

Just wondering if this might be one of those cases... (any probs with using iodine with your perlite?)
