What's the deal with Perlite?
    #538174 - 02/01/02 10:06 PM (21 years, 9 months ago)

In my rubbermaid fruiting chamber, I just pour water with H2O2 added, in the bottom and elevate my substrate containers. Saw no difference when using perlite, except for the mess.

I can see it being necessary when birthing cakes to wick up water, otherwise it seems totally unnecessary.

Am I missing something?


The proof is in the pudding.

Yes, perlite humidification isn't necessary for casings.

No, the perlite is for humidification, not wicking water to your cakes. Most people put their cakes on top of a lid in between the cake and the perlite. Direct contact with overly wet perlite COULD cause dieback, or contamination with cakes.

There are outdoor situations where perlite humidification has a usefulness for casings!!!!
