air stone in perlite
    #3818988 - 02/22/05 10:02 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

i intend to use perlite in my fruiting chamber and would like to know if there is any reason that i should put an air stone (w/ air pump obviously) underneath it or on top of it? saw this being used in the grow logs with the stones but didnt come across any that used it for perlite. will it even work if its useful?

Sure, many people use an airstone or bubble wand under the perlite to provide air exchange. Do a search for the "Poor Man's Pod".

I read that one, as well as the "Average Man's Terrarium", and even "The Perlite Humidification Tips" and not one mention of an airstone under the perlite!

The air stone helps with gas exchange. It is good in any terrarium for a self-maintained terrarium.
