perlite in PF cakes?
    #3888523 - 03/08/05 07:07 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I was wondering if anyone has ever used perlite in their PF cakes instead of vermiculite? I tried it the first time I grew, but my setup wasn't very good so I don't know if they didn't fruit well because
of my setup or because of the perlite in the cakes. I wouldn't bother asking, but there's no vermiculite for 100 miles :frown:. Any tips will help thanks.

P.S. Does anyone know what happened to Nans Nook?

Perlite does not absorb water and slowly release it. Verm does. Sorry, they arent substitutions. There isnt one for verm either. It can be bought from any online hydroponics place though for cheap.
