miracle grow perlite
    #4172098 - 05/13/05 08:08 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey, I'm about to birth some of my pf cakes but i just wanted to be clear on something before I did. I bought this miracle grow brand perlite for my fruiting chamber and it has miracle grow in it. I'd like to know if this would be harmful to the mushrooms. I've already wetted it and it smells kinda funny. If anyone has any input that would be great. I might have to buy some new perlite, but i wanted ur guys advice on it first.
thanks.

I didn't read about FERTILIZER anywhere in the TEKs so take a wild guess to answer your own question

Fertilzer has lots of Potash and...Phorphurs(sp)...I don't think that's ideal for mushies..

Are you sure it has ferts in it? Just because it is made by Mircale Grow does not mean it has ferts in it.

Is this just for humidity in your terrarium?? If so then you shouldn't have any problems.

I would just rinse it thoroughly before using it in your terrarium.

Yeah man, just rinse it REALLY well, you shouldn't have any problems with it interfering with fruiting.
