PF style cakes directly on perlite?
    #3451729 - 12/05/04 10:20 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

After doing a search I see that most recommend puting the cakes on lids as opposed to directly on the perlite. This would stop the cakes from wicking up the moisture from rhe perlite and I kind of wonder if this is a good thing. I only ask this question because the site I bought my kit off of recomends putting the cakes directly on the perlite so they can wick up the moisture from the perlite. Kind of wonder if it might not be a bad idea to take them off the lids once or twice a week to allow them to wick up the moisture which should make misting them unnecessary.

Yeah, lots of people recommend putting the cakes directly onto the perlite for the first few days after a big flush to help re-hydrate them. Just watch that they don't become too soggy or waterlogged. If so, just put em back on the lids. It shouldn't hurt anything.

Got any pics, anyone?

You're not like the others. You like the same things I do. Wax paper, boiled football leather... dog breath. We're not hitch-hiking anymore, we're riding!

From my exp., the perlite jus made things messy, if u do put them directly on there, you may want to watch them carefully and tim foil is hot so i wouldnt use it, itd make some mushrooms grow downwards, something plastic or something that doesn't reflect light would work better. Gl
