Dunking and perlite?
    #2822362 - 06/23/04 11:12 PM (14 years, 1 day ago)

Alrite, I am referring to one of the PF teks.....
Is it alright to use Vermiculite instead of perlite for the bottom layer of the fruting chamber to create humidity?

Also what is dunking?

Nevermind about dunking......
It is.... when you submerge your colonized substrate in water for usually 24-48hours to replace lost water from previous flushes....

But wont the cakes fall apart in water? Should it be cold water?

Dunk for 12 hours.. in a mixture of water:peroxide (10:1).. colonized cakes will not fall apart

verm will not get you 100% humidity..use perlite.. $5 at walmart


honestly.. if you are starting out.. i would go with a bag grow.. jars are a mess

check out what this guy got with one flush of a $10 bag

im doing bags from now on.. no need for a fruitng chamber.. no perlite.. no mess.. massive flushes

Make sure the water is cold, but not freezing or anything. Perlite is cheap and is found at alot of stores, verm probably wouldn't humidify the whole terrarium.
