    I usually put coffee filters in my pots to keep the potting media in.

    If the perlite chunks are big enough (1/2+ the diameter of the drain holes) just put a thin layer of pure perlite on the bottom of the pot. The chunks sort of interlock and stabilize to hold the rest of the medium in. Some of the smaller pieces will wash out but it will stabilize.

    That's not necessisarily true. If seed is stored dry under refridgeration you can get a decent amount of germination even after 2 to 3 years. Collegues of mine have had wonderful germination on seed 6 years old as well.
