Too much perlite?

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by MakoReactor, Aug 8, 2007.

  1. I hope this hasn't already been answered. If so, I apologize - I couldn't seem to find a topic on it. Is it possible to have too much perlite? In hindsight, I think I may have put in a bit too much. Maybe half perlite, and half soil. Would anyone see this as a potential problem?

  2. I normally do 1 part perlite to 3 parts soil. It wont kill your plants or have any major adverse effects going 50/50 with it. Keep an eye out on the moisure levels in your pots though cause with so much perlite your pots wont absorb as much water before it all runs out the bottom.
  3. Excellent advice, thank you. :)
  4. Np glad to be of help :)
