Perlite Clarification Please
    #391112 - 09/11/01 11:34 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

One more quick perlite question - I'm not sure I put the
right amount of water in my terrarium. Using large
rubbermaid opaque container with top cut out and
replaced with clear security film. I have about 1.5
inches of perlite on the bottom which I wetted down.
I don't have any standing water in the bottom. There
is no visible humidification, but I went ahead and
birthed 3 cakes into it last night. Do I need to have any standing water in and/or around the perlite?
I thought I read that all the excess water should be
drained off, but I have read so many things that I
don't know whether I read that from an experienced
grower or not.
Replies appreciated.
Thanks..Darla

I put a 1:10 of h2o2:h2o solution on a 2" deep perlite layer untill i see water level reaching 1".

Peace,

Thank you, I will add some 1:10 solution when I get
home, and bring my water level up a bit.
