    Don't use perlite in a bog. When it rains it will float and make a mess.
    It's like walking out a door and discovering it's a window.

    I used perlite in my bogs, I just put a layer of peat and sand on top of the entire bog to make sure the perlite doesn't float when it rains. I hate that!
