Possible substitutes for geolite in a PMP?
    #3817200 - 02/22/05 04:21 PM (12 years, 3 days ago)

Geolite is impossible to get in my town unless I order by mail. I am using lava rock atm that I rinsed thouroughly. However the pieces are bigger than I would like and it is a hassle to break them up since I live in an apartment. Well it is coming up on spring in my town and Wal-Mart has all their spring stuff in. While searching the new inventory I noticed river rock and pea gravel. Both said that they helped retain moisture, but I am unsure as to the wicking properties of each. Does anyone have any information or experience with these 2 items? Also, I have read that brick is a possible substitute for geolite. That also intrigues me because it can be stacked and you wouldn't necessarily have to fill your PMP's bottom. Does anyone have any experience with brick as a substitute?

Thanks for all the information.

what makes you want to change from the lava rocks? The rocks should have no problem keeping your humidty at a reasonable level.

The lava rock is not very uniform in size or shape like geolite. My surface for putting my cakes is not very level because of that. River rock is smaller and made up of rounded rocks. Pea gravel is literally the size of peas, so it would make a very even surface. Brick beind flat would be my preferred, since I won't have to fill the PMP totally full of rock. My main reason for asking is because it took 2 50lb. bags of lava rock to make my PMP. I think i could get by with less from the other materials.

Can't you put like some mesh wire on top to make it level?

I thought about that. And it is possibly what I will do. I am just really intrigued by these other materials and wondering if anyone has ever tried them. I plan to make another PMP in about a month, so I can have 2 going.
