Re: Perlite Please!

Dude. I would say log into a gew sites and just ask them for quotes on cost + shipping. You don't really need perlite. Any abosorbant substance should do. I am seriously considering using spahgnum moss next time instead of perlite/vermiculite. After all it's natural, retains water better than perlite and isn't too expensive. See what you can find, I'll bet you have moss in Brazil. I use sphagnum for my snake as a humidity retreat, he loves it. It is dry in my house in the winter due to the furnaces dry air. I wet down the sphagnum and it stays wet for 2 or three days. In a substrate it should work well.

if you want to use it for humidity in your setup then you could just use another form of humidifacation(sp?)sraying with a drip shield fish tank bubbler ect.ect. there are lots of ways to get the right humidity
