    and to Dave S. hm...i'm worried a little about my health, I breathe in so much perlite dust when I'm making my potting mix.[/QUOTE]
    The dust can get into your lungs and cause respiratory problems. I learned this recently at a CP meeting and I have since taken precautions while repotting plants.

    What I do is tuen on the exhaust fan and mix my soils up in front of it. This way any perlite dust get's sucked outside. You could probably put afan behind yourself and have it blow the dust away form your potting area.
