I have been testing my equipment and procedures for my grow but one thing is bugging me, The perlite is damp (great place for mold a bacteria), how do I keep the perlite "clean" once the cakes are on it? :rasta:

Every once in a while take it all out and bake it for a couple hours. Have a vacumm around, you're likely to spill it around.

Or just buy more, it's like $3 a bag.

Oh, and yeah it should have some h2o2 in it. Just a few healthy glugs in the water and then use a dilute h202 when you spray. And make sure your air supply is clean. (This can be as simple as dunking your lines in a quart jar of dilute h202.) Don't use too much though, if memory serves, it breaks down to c02, which you don't want for fruiting. AFAOF noticed o2 problems when he was using pure (well 3%) h2o2 even though he had more then enough air flow.

So he just uses dilute for now.

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

don't even mess with it at all, by to rubbermaids for 3-4 dollars a piece and make a TiT. perlite works but in my opinion its not worth the headache.
