    Perlite

    A word of caution for those who use perlite. I've recently picked up a back of Black Gold perlite from Sun Gro Horticulture (8-quart bag), and wish I hadn't. As always, I thoroughly rinse my soil additives. For perlite I use a 5-gallon paint strainer bag. Works perfectly. While rinsing...

    Sprouting in just perlite

    I've seen this done with pretty good success but is there any downsides? Also, the perlite I have is miracle grow and it's .07.07.07. That won't hurt or burn the sprout right?

    Reusing perlite from soil?

    I use a lot of ffof. Is it worth it when my plants are done to use a screen or something and "pan" for perlite? It's 10$ a bag here but I'm not sure what % of ffof is perlite.
