Perlite: why not only water?
    #959673 - 10/14/02 02:36 PM (18 years, 9 months ago)

The usual suspect of a friend is wondering why perlite is used for the bottom of an aquarium, instead of simply one centimeter of water (>casing teks)?
That's what he did, and it worked fine. But there must be a trick, isn't there?

The perilite increases the surface area exposed to air , thus releasing water molecules into atmosphere quicker (evaporation rate ) , standing water alone is more likely to breed contaminants .

yeap and i will like to add to your statements my friend tripndicular that having water on the bottom of your shroom-box is not so practical... if you accidentally move it a little more careless, you could end with your shrooms taking a shower lol lol lol
