BLEACHING LAVA ROCK FOR PMP....
    #3029737 - 08/20/04 08:28 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Ok so i finnaly got off my ass and made a PMP with lava rock... just curious i boiled all my lava rock with bleach and water. I may have used too much bleach? my cakes are not ready to be fruited yet. i just wanted to get setup before i did fruit them. now i have my pmp running will this help remove the bleachy smell and dilute the bleach. i also have h2o2 in with the water.. i just want to make sure the bleach isnt going to kill my cakes. Their is no bleach directly added to the water in the pmp. but it smells of bleach lightly not badly.?????

Sorry to hijack but I have a question on lava rocks as well, my friend just got some as well for his PMP and is it nessacary to bleach and boil the rock? or can you just wash it good and go?

I figured lava rock and leca are nutritionless, and would therefore not harbor contams. Or at least not so much that a fully colonized cake can't fight off. Am I wrong?

on the lava rock PMP tip,
Perhaps my friends didn't boil his blue lava rocks enough,


as you can see, that blue nasty paint is in there, the paint stinks,
his whole pod smelled like it for awhile (still smells like it some).

He got white lava rocks cause he needed to put some more in, and he boiled them waay more and stirred them around to get most of the paint off, but still couldn't get it all off.

Can the smelly paint that is all over lava rocks hurt your cakes?
