Question with Perlite
    #3129835 - 09/13/04 03:48 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

So my choice is perlite against my better judgement.  It seems people's opinions of this small volcanic rock differ from person to person.

Anyway, I've been reading (in multiple places) that perlite needs changed in your terrarium often.  Is this true?  If so, how often (generally) does it need changed?  Are there noticable signs that your perlite needs changed?

Looking for responses from others who use or have used perlite.

Thanks,

2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Perlite is the tried and true method of humidification. It has a much higher surface area than volcanic rock (I think), making it a much better choice if you aren't going to use a bubbler or air pump setup.

Change the perlite between runs. e.g. each time you put a new batch of cakes in.

Alternately, you can rinse and re-sterilize the perlite after each run.

No problem. I gave you a 5 shroom rating to get you started. Feel free to return the favor.

Good Luck!
