Bleach for sterilization?
    #958779 - 10/14/02 02:49 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I jus wanna know if its safe to use bleach to sterilize Perlite to be put into your terrarium/casing? Another thing... Would plant food help the mushrooms in any way? Increasing potency/growing fast? Thanks in advance to all who reply...  :wink:

Probably will want to use a very diluted solution of bleach...

If you mean to re-use it, just pop it in the oven for a little while. Using a peroxide and water mixture will keep it from going smelly while in the terrarium.

If you dont have a problem getting perlite, you're best bet is to just use fresh stuff everytime....its so cheap!
