Picked up some hydroton(aka geolite)... necessary to sterilize before use?

$15 for 25 liters.. not sure if thats a good price or not, but didn't feel like shopping around.

So should I like soak it in bleach water and let dry before use, or bake it, or anything like that? Is the H2O2 I add to the water enough?

I guess I didn't do anything to the perlite.. lol

Geolite, Hydroton and Perlite all work the same right?
I've heard that perlite floats in water, so I'll prolly get some hydroton.

Sterilization all depends on how much effort you want to expend to create a lesser chance of your mushies getting contaminated. If it were me, I'd bake, bleach, rinse extremely well, and put in the fruiting chamber. Or bleach, rinse, bake. Bleach and rinse might even be enough.

uh, sterilisation cant be bad but it isnt required.
washing it good, rinsing it and then maybe add some h2o2 to the water should do the job.
peace ohm :mushroom2:

I've been looking for this stuff. That picture tells me that it might be in the garden section, but I haven't found any yet. I've looked at walmart, home depot, revy, superstore, but no nurseries.

Suggestions?

Try looking on the internet or your phone book for local Hydroponic stores.

It's really meant for hydroponics, so any store that carries supplies for that should have it.

I guess H2O2 will have to do.. I don't really think soaking in bleach would be a good idea, it would be too hard to get it all out.. and baking it would be a huge PITA.

Every Hydroponsics store will have it. Some people do not like hydro stores. If you are one of those, you could also try an outdoor pond store. I've noticed major dept. stores do not carry it as much as they used to.
