Geolite, I have heard, is better. I couldn't find it. So I went to the local home depot and bought two 4qt bags or perlite. They were like 2.65 each. Not too bad. The perlite is doing a great job is keeping the humidity up. It stays at 100%

The lava rocks are SO much easier to work with than perlite. If you are using perlite and haven't had the pleasure of trying to take it out of your fruiting chamber, your'e in for a treat.

I use geolite, since:
1. its easy to get and cheap here.
2. it lasts (can re-use etc)
3. it is less messy then the freaky perlite

BUT perlite can be used, it keeps your RH up etc.

"Works better" in what way?

Perlite:
1. is hard to re-use
2. is more messy
3. is about equal in keeping RH up
4. will sure do the job too!

Conclusion it is not better then geolite. Or do you have a secret feature Im not aware of? :smile:

I grow fat mushies on cakes, and nice casings, on the geolite! :thumbup:

I bought mine in a garden centre.

Marijhuana is often grown on it here, also plants in companies often have Geolite instead of soil in their pots.

Perlite, but you need to screen out all the dust.It will wicker a lot better that way.My 1st perlite lasted 9 months.Didn't like the smell so I changed it.Thats cheap. Build a "Martha" then you don't have to worry about it.
