Perlite and tap water
    #3401170 - 11/24/04 12:41 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I know its "ok" to use perlite and tap water in the terrarium, and I know cakes and casings fight contams on their own.  My question is, would it be SAFER to add H2O2 to the tap water moistening the perlite?  Or would it be better to use distilled water perhaps?

Or will tap water simply be good enough?  I want to be cautious, but not ridiculous with it!  :smile:

Thanks!

Tap water should be fine, but a little H2O2 wouldn't hurt. I always add it to my terrarium water, regardless if it's tap water or not.

10:1 ratio sufficient?

Is there any risk of the H202 being part of the humidity and hindering my growth if I used too much?

10:1 is great. I wouldn't go much stronger than that, that is good enough. It won't hurt the myc at that concentration. Just be sure to measure. But for this purpose, close is good enough. A tad bit more or less won't make much difference.
