perlite question?
    #3601989 - 01/09/05 04:55 AM (12 years, 13 days ago)

ok...i have a 2 inch layer of perlite on the bottom of my terranium...and i'm thinking because of the un-sterile conditions...wouldn't algae or fungus grow on the perlite with the lights on and everything?
so i was thinkin of adding peroxide to the perlite base.....any thoughts on this?

it's not a bad idea, many folks add peroxide to help steralize their fruiting chamber just that little much more. i would add it into the water i used to saturate the perilite.
good luck.

I didn't think there was any other way....h2o2 is a must have.

I put H202 in ALL the water I use, from starting my cakes to the water in my humidifier. It's just safer that way.

Bleach is a good thing to clean the perlite with....but you should wash the bleach off with water or a light mix of h202 and water....Otherwise the pharamones from the bleach will be absorbed by your mushies :thumbdown:, Lysol causes mutants usually, bleach wil either kill them or cause really mutanty mutants....

Peroxide or cheaper yet iodine (1-2 drops per gallon of water) is a must for sure!
