Rockwool

Has anyone tried Rockwool slabs as a casing material? They can be cut with a bread knife into slabs of usable thickness.

Like horticultural grade rockwool, which is compacted into firm slabs, not loose rockwool like used for loft insulation.

Maybe it can be used in place of perlite at the bottom of the terraaium? Or in place of vermiculite on top?

I tried searching the site but nothing...

I've not heard of anyone doing that, so you'd be the first. Sounds like it would work, though you might have a problem with contam and water retention. But hell, try it and tell us what happens!

no, but rockwool does have the properties needed, the loose rockwool would
be better suited or if you take the slab and chop/shred it well you may be
able to do well with it... I recomend trying one casing first and do any others
in a traditional method, that will save you the crying if it fails
