PmP Q..Perlite...or....G-Rock
    #3561077 - 12/30/04 01:25 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys, welcome back to another thread =)

Anyways, i've kind of stumbled into a bit of a problem. Well i need to save space, so I bought a smaller sized Contianer/Rubbermaid for my Grow chamber, I've building a PmP, I've got all of the materials....except Geo-lite rocks...I know that I can use lava rocks...but they're heavy as hell, Well, Not realy for this rather small Chamber but I have a lot of perlite sitting around, so i was curious as to the pro's and con's between using G-rocks and Perlite in the PmP...I'm not exactly sure what G-rocks do, I thought that they put humidity into the air but don't the wand rocks do that? Well, i'm kind of in a pickle (HaHa), so if Anybody could help point me into a direction, then that'd be appreciated, and links would be great 2....
O and like i said, i've got all materials, except for the rocks...
Well thankx for ur imput

The air wands put the humidity in the air...the rocks give you casing something to sit on that air and moisture will easily pass through. Perlite is much more dense and wont allow air and moisture to pass through it as well.

Perilite unlike geolite will provide humidity by itself though so the air wands can either sit on top of the perlite or be put in a jar filled with water. That is if under the perlite doesnt work out...which it does for some...if you rinse and strain it well and get out all the powder crap especially.

If it were me...I'd probably get the lava rocks but money isnt much of an issue for me (neither is moving pods if I have them)...if moneys short you can get the perlite to work.
