perlite in hydrogen peroxide?
    #4617170 - 09/03/05 08:39 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

i searched a bit, and i'm using a poor man's terrarium, and it says to soak perlite in 3% hydrogen peroxide, and then put it at the bottom.

now what is even the point of perlite? can i just use verm instead?

can i just use water instead of hydrogen peroxide?

No. You cant substitue verm for perlite. LOL, seems I say this at least once a day.The "point" of perlite is it's ability to wick water into it, and convert it to humidity. There is no reason to soak it in peroxide. I put my perlite in a strainer, pour water over it for a minute or 2, then I give it a rinse of peroxide water.Not only does the peroxide help fight contams from stagnant water, it maintains a fresh shroomy smell in your fc.

When using perlite,put it in a sceen to shake out all the fine dust. This will help it wicker better,IMO.

Verm does not wicker. It retains h2o

Do not use 3% h2o2 alone. Mix it with h2o.Like 5%, 3%h2o2 and the rest h2o.

Hope this helps. Good Luck
