replacements for perlite?
    #410331 - 10/01/01 07:18 PM (16 years, 5 months ago)

Hey guys,

I would buy perlite and all (since its so cheap) but I know that I could find a cheap replacement for it around the dorms. Right now I'm using some wet t-shirts and misting the sides of the chamber a few times a day, but when i open the chamber to fan and stick my hand in, it never feels too humid. My question is, are there any free tips or tricks to use to raise humidity? Thanks for humoring me. :)

P.S. are the wet t-shirts inviting contams?

Crunch up some styrofoam packing peanuts and keep them wet. Works as good as perlite.

breaking appart styrofoam releses some seriously bad shit into the air. I forget exactly what, but its right up there with CFC's. New styrofoam isn't as bad as the old stuff, but still worse than it should be. This is our planet, lets give it a sporting chance.
